    My 1st Android was the D1, it had an SD. Then the Gnex, which didn't have an SD. Through trial & error I learned to back up my data. Either with apps or with the USB. So I knew what I was up against with the Moto X. If I wanted to unlock & root it, the developer edition was the one for me. I learned with the Gnex that not having an SD wasn't a problem. Like the apps that LoneWolfArcher suggested, there are apps that will help fill the void of not having an SD. As for rooting, the developer edition is the way to go with this phone. But honestly, I haven't found a need to use root access so far.

    What apps do you use to save app data like games?

    I've moved away from playing games on phones. I've always played PC based games. But if I had to keep/transfer game data, I use Titanium Backup.

    Can you use that if your not rooted? I use that now and thought it needed root.

    From my experience, if you wish to use Titanium Backup, your phone needs to be rooted.
    TB would not even load on any device, until I had gained root.

    So er... My Moto X put me back 400 dollars, and yours was one cent. We both got to keep unlimited data. I'd say you got the better deal given that my Moto X was 399.99 dollars more than yours. :blink:

    I also never go over 4 Gigs, even on my rooted wifi tether able GNex. Still, never know what I might need one day.

    I don't think he got to keep unlimited. To use .01 through Amazon he either had to add a new line (and you don't get to choose unlimited) or had to be eligible for an upgrade. I think he was saying that he would have paid outright to keep unlimited but after checking his usage decided he could live with 8gb share everything.

    I agree that makes more sense, but it seemed like he dropped his unlimited and got the share everything plan to just save money.

    You CAN root it, but you can't boot loader unlock it. If you want to unlock the boot loader then you need the Moto X Dev edition.

    I just want to make sure I understand this... An unlocked bootloader is what let's you load custom roms correct?

    That is correct. Unlocked boot loader allows a custom recovery, which allows custom ROMs.
