Sprint Press Release of Motorola Moto X

Today, Motorola Mobility introduced Moto X™, the first smartphone designed, engineered and assembled in the USA. Sprint (NYSE: S) plans to offer the Moto X smartphone later this summer. Powered by Android™ 4.2.2, Jellybean, Moto X will offer customers the Sprint Unlimited Guarantee – unlimited talk, text and data while on the Sprint network guaranteed for the life of the line of service.

Moto X will be available for $199.99 (excluding taxes) with a new line or eligible upgrade and two-year service agreement in all Sprint retail channels, including Web (www.sprint.com) and Telesales (1-800-SPRINT1). Exact availability will be shared closer to launch. Customers can get more information and preregister for Moto X from Sprint at www.sprint.com/motox.

The Sprint Unlimited Guarantee promises customers unlimited talk (calls to any wireline or mobile phone), text and data while on the Sprint network, for the life of the line of service. This guarantee is available to new and existing customers who sign up for Sprint’s new Unlimited, My WaySM or My All-inSM plans.

“Sprint is excited to bring the benefit of a lifetime unlimited guarantee to the new Moto X,” said Fared Adib, Sprint senior vice president-Product Development. “Moto X is an exciting product that is highly anticipated by the market and will be a great option for customers looking to switch to Sprint and gain the value of the new device and our unlimited lifetime guarantee.”

The new Unlimited, My Way and My All-in rate plans feature unlimited talk, text and data while on the Sprint network for as little as $80 per month (excluding taxes and fees). The Unlimited, My Way plan can offer customers a significant savings when compared to competitors’ capped data plans. For example, smartphone customers can save $20 per month vs. Verizon’s comparable plan with only 2GB of data.1
