    The Moto G isn't LTE?

    They will, but you'll lose unlimited from what I've seen. No thanks!

    I'm betting this is exactly the reason why they are giving a discount-
    They want to trick those still with unlimited data and 4g to get the moto g, thinking they can keep the unlimited data since they are buying an off contract phone at a good price only to find out that activating it will make them lose the unlimited data

    So if you dont have unlimited data then you can get a Moto G for $99 and use it on LTE?

    Moto g has no LTE modem. 3g etc only.

    That's partly why it's so cheap.

    My guess is this might be a dual-subsidy from Google and VZW in order to make it cheaper and "low risk" to entice people who still have feature phones to try the world of smartphones.

    Would also jump all over $199 for the Moto X off-contract but don't see that happening. I'm starting to itch to upgrade, but I want to see if VZW does anything with unlimited and what happens with VoLTE. I have a feeling VoLTE will be so superior in quality that it will be hard to pass-up, and I'd guess you won't be able to get it and still keep unlimited.

    By the way, for anyone eyeing a new phone purchase - looks like old phones might not be VoLTE compatible. Add to that a past history of the first batch of phones with new tech not being quite up to par and I'm waiting before shelling out $600+ retail for a phone.

    I can see the Moto X coming down to maybe 249 no contract, potentially 199 down the road. I know people say its about the experience and not all about the specs, but most people just look at the spec sheet and compare it to other phones and spec-wise it was already a bit dated when it came out. They have already dropped it to 349 off contract I believe, I can see steeper price cuts in the future.
