When I ordered mine it said it 'Ships in 5-7 days'. It played out as follows:
11/22- Ordered
11/24- Card charged
11/25- Shipped
11/26- Arrived

I was surprised it came so quick, 4 days isnt bad.

I'm not too worried about the company folding in the near future. It's gotten so many rave reviews, I think they are doing pretty well. They are going to be releasing two additional phones in the near future, at cheaper price tags than the X. Honestly I see this as something catching on and spreading to other companies.

I run a pretty tight budget. When I switched to Republic in September, I started putting the money I was saving on my bill aside. Not factoring in what I just spent on the phone, I have saved $180 already. Its definitely pretty awesome.

And i'm calling it now. Rather than folding, Republic will be bought out by another company. I bet google buys them out one day and turns it into their own wireless company.

No, Use MY link

On a more serious note, i noticed I had a few text messages from thanksgiving I never received. Well they all came in today, and each one (4 of them) came in atleast a dozen times each. My phone was blowing up for a solid 5 min. Apparently they had a bug in their system they just fixed which released all these held messages.

Anyone else have that happen?

They fixed it, I got the email about the bug fix even though I have not gotten my phone yet.

^ I used that code you posted on the last page, is that your personal code?

I am on the Sprint One Up program (basically I have not finished paying for the Note 3 yet), and by porting over my number and cancelling my service will this potentially cause a bad ESN on the phone? I can pay off the balance immediately, but as long as it not delinquent it shouldn't cause a bad ESN is what I am thinking?

ESN wont be bad unless the account is never paid or goes to collections. I think if you port out it wont be bad anyway even if you do not pay the final bill. The ESN usually stays on the account if its suspended for non-payment and eventually disconnected, but not necessarily port outs or disconnections that you request in advance of being suspended for non-payment, that is at least how it worked at Verizon.

I had a bunch of smartphones on an account that got caught in an estate a couple of years ago. (different carrier though) Prior to it being disconnected I switched them all to flip phones just to be on the safe side.

Been nothing but happy so far with the X Phone.

Which case and accessories have y'all bought for it? I ended up going with the black and red SUPCASE from amazon. http://www.amazon.com/SUPCASE-Motorola-Unicorn-Beetle-Hybrid/dp/B00E8GQHM2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1387386620&sr=8-2&keywords=moto+x+case

RingPlus is good if all you want to do is talk. Their plans are just to limited for me, howver I ain't knocking the hustle. Good shit.

Quite right, RingPlus stops being free when you include the rest of it. But, I use my GoogleVoice number, so texting is free, and data is reasonably priced at 2 cents per MB. So, I do wind up paying $2 a month or so.

I switched from the Defy to the MotoX a couple of weeks ago. Huge difference, very pleased. I'm also on the $10/month plan.

Caved and got two MotoX's since it looks like the MotoG is not eligible for the Jelly Bean rebate as of yet. Now I need to find cases and some screen protectors. The wife liked the Otterbox Commuter for the DefyXT, so I will probably get her the same case. I used the BodyGlove Dropsuit for the Defy which was OK. I have no idea on screen protectors.

I got the SUPcase and its very protective and has a great price point. I dropped my phone once already and I heard a nice protective thud when it hit the tiled floor at work. I am sure it paid for itself with that one drop.

^ I was looking at that one and just ordered it now. There are so many more choices compared to the Defy. Once we take a look at it, we'll decide on the second case.

It is a VERY (I mean VERY VERY) precise fit for the Moto X, and doesn't add really any noticeable bulk to the phone - basically it looks natural in this case. I love it, and you probably will too.

Fortunately there is not much need to take it off since the battery is not removable. When my Defy locked up I usually just let the battery drain to get it to reboot rather than bothering getting the case off and the back cover off.

Any MotoX users here experiencing poor call quality the last few days? Seems common in the community: https://community.republicwireless.com/thread/22221

My MotoX is supposed to be here tomorrow and this is not how I want it to start out.

I did have some hiccups a little during all of the storming the other day. But I turned off my wifi and made direct cell calls and it went away. So you have the option to go wifi only or cell only and perhaps one of them should work out should you have reception problems.

It sounds like issues people have been having affected all calls, not just wifi or cell. We'll see.

Oh OK. I can vouch for the service and says that its has been great so far, and the company is still in it's (proverbial) infancy so things like this are to be expected within reason.

There is nothing wrong with the MotoX.

Quote :
"I think we can call this issue resolved. I know some will still have call quality issues, see my previous comment on VoIP and Cell, but the issue that was causing call audio drops starting a few days ago is now fixed.

Here are the basics of what we found:

"We started seeing a small amount of ticket growth over the weekend and yesterday. Through the help of the people in this post, we were able to see commonalities that led us to discovering an issue with a subset of one of our server clusters. While a relatively small percentage of customers experienced this issue, it was still an issue. We have fixed the underlying issue, but will continue monitoring."[quote]

I would like to thank everyone in this post and everyone who took the time to fill out the incident report. This really shows the power of Community.

I will be leaving the Incident tracker up as a tool for call quality, call completion and texting issues. Since most issues are not easily reproduced, this allows us to aggregate individual issues better than we can with tickets.

They also have been doing work on the Sprint network in Raleigh/Durham, so I wonder if that also has been affecting the calling lately. I know last night i was on cell and I was getting a ton of dropped calls, but I assumed it was still for this.
