    Moto X

    Even though T-Mobile doesn’t sell the Moto X at this time, the carrier already has a support page up for Motorola’s latest flagship handset.

    A Moto X version that can work on T-Mobile’s network will be sold directly by Motorola, as T-Mobile is yet to sell the handset in its own stores.

    Even before the Moto X was unveiled, rumors suggested that the carrier and Motorola have not inked a deal for the handset. Then, an FCC filing for a Moto X version that had support for T-Mobile’s bands was discovered, suggesting that the nation’s fourth mobile operator will stock the handset.

    However, when announcing the handset, Motorola confirmed that it will sell T-Mobile-compatible Moto X versions directly from its online store.

    Moto X - T-Mobile support pages

    So far, the carrier has not announced plans to sell the handset, but it looks like T-Mobile is ready to offer all the needed support to Moto X buyers that select the T-Mobile version.

    Currently, the Moto X is only available for sale from AT&T, with Verizon, Sprint and U.S. Cellular expected to launch the handset in the following weeks/days.

      I hope their version has WiFi Calling support.

        I hope so too. This seems to imply that it does http://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-8370.

          “Turn on Wi-Fi calling – This feature is not available with this device.”

          That page implies exactly the opposite.

      “Motorola’s Moto X, like all Android phones, is at the mercy of the carriers” is exactly why Motorola / Google blew it bad. This phone should have been released on the announcement day via the “Play Store” & sold for the rumored $299 / $349. Then, like they did with the Nexus 4, the carriers could have bought it for the same price that the carriers will be currently paying, $349. this way the release isn’t negatively tied to Motorola but to each carrier for their failure to expedite the stocking of the moto x.
