If you install a custom ROM you will lose active notifications and touchless controls. That is kind of the point of buying this phone.
The 4G is supported in the phone in the UK. Surely it will be in other countries in Europe.
Right now there are no method to unlock the bootloader AT&T and Verizon (yet), Motorola will not give you the unlock code for it. If you want to install custom rom, you'll need the T-Mobile/Unlock version or Sprint version.
If you want to use the Moto X on ATT, get the T-Mobile/Unlock version. It support all the 3G and LTE frequencies that are required by ATT and it's sim unlocked. The ATT version is sim locked, no way to unlock bootloader yet, and have ATT carrier branding and bloatwares, not to mention it may be that you will get updates faster with the Unlocked version. So there is effective no reason why you should get the ATT version for this phone at all.
t3h_dude, 28 Jan 2014You are mistaken the developer edition with the Google Edition. Right now there are no Google ... moreOh! sorry my bad, What I tried to say is from Motorola not Google.
Ok, I'll go for T-mobile version cuz I want to customize my phone.
Thanks for your reply.
Anonymous, 24 Jan 2014If i buy this handset unlocked from US, will I be able to use it in Europe?Yes, it will be compatible with 3G all over Europe. It won't support LTE bands in europe though. If you want something similar with LTE support, get a Nexus 5 European/World version.

I just wan... moreBuy the Unlock GSM/Tmobile version (they're the same), it doesn't come with carrier branding. The unlocked GSM version will support pentaband 3G, so it will work with any GSM network around the world.
Nickotd, 27 Jan 2014Can someone tell me if the gsm unlocked T-mobile is bloatware free and update as fast as Dev. ... moreYou are mistaken the developer edition with the Google Edition. Right now there are no Google Edition of the Moto X.
All the developer edition mean is that you can unlock the bootloader and not lose your warranty. Otherwise it is the same as the T-Mobile/Unlock version, which will lose warranty if you unlock bootloader. Otherwise, they both essentially run the same software and get same updates. They will not have bloatwares, except for integrated Motorola apps. Even other carrier branded version doesn't have much bloatwares.
Also it doesn't make sense for the Moto X to come as a Google Edition device since it will miss out on Motorola features like Active Display and always listening. If you want were to install stock Android on it you will lose these unique features, so then there is no point to buy this phone, might as well just get a Nexus 5 for the same price which is a faster phone with better specs, but without Moto X features (always slightly less battery life due to lacking Moto X optimization).
There is a Moto G Google Edition, if you don't need the Moto X features, get that instead.
kishan, 27 Jan 2014which moto x version will work in india? Get the Unlocked GSM version, which is also the T-Mobile version (unbranded). However, it won't support LTE in India, since base on Wikipedia India use LTE Band 40 which the Moto doesn't support. You will get 3G and HSPA+ though.
Can someone tell me if the gsm unlocked T-mobile is bloatware free and update as fast as Dev. Edition (Update from Google)?

Nickotd, 23 Jan 2014Anyway, can your moto x update to Kitkat?Which carrier do you use in saoedi arabie?
I have a question : i live in Suriname (sout america).....my friend is going to the US but i want a moto x : what should I buy ? An at&t off contract? An Developer Edition?....i'm confused...please replay
Its actually Dev Edition but inside same as T-Mobile both has same model number (XT1053)
I prefer this version outside US. Regarding the update its from Google. I tried heavy games they worked fine and without any sign of heating.
If i buy this handset unlocked from US, will I be able to use it in Europe?
