Edited - it is $200 on ebay now:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Motorola-MOT.../221676670648?

This was my original post:

Just wanted to give people a head's up - you can get a brand new Verizon Moto X Dev Ed on ebay for $220. Click through ebates, fatwallet or mrrebates and you get another 2% back. Not much cash back, but it is better than nothing.

I don't think these come with a manufacturer's warranty but idk for sure. It's a great price for a great phone!! I actually like the white woven back/black front combo a lot.

Just search for Verizon Moto X on ebay and you will find the listing. N/A. Last night there were only about 500 sold but tonight over 1600 sold! I don't know how many the guy has to sell.

Also check your email for an email from paypal for a $50 statement credit if you sign up for paypal credit. Not everyone gets the offer, but it came around the end of November. If you sign up and then buy the phone on credit, you will get a $50 statement credit! Check your spam folder if have a paypal account and don't see the offer but like I said, not everyone gets the offer.

Do be aware, it seems most of these are from the September 2014 batch that left the factory with incorrect programming (seems the CID is set wrong) and the boot loader unlock site will tell you that the phone cannot be unlocked.
Your going to need to go to this: https://forums.motorola.com/posts/f2061da875?page=1 thread and read the section of the OP in red letters if that is the case. It provides an email address you can email your information to get the unlock code.
Motorola IS unlocking these phones however, and having read through that thread multiple people have inquired about warranty and been told its being honored...

Still a good deal, I have been happy with my phone... but it took about 5 days to get it unlocked and a bit of digging around to figure it all out. Now that Motorola has been dealing with the issue, and you already know about it it should be a lot quicker to get your code. I got in RIGHT after then stopped having you PM oliver on the forum, right before they started trying to figure out how to handle us all.

If you're on Verizon and are looking for a smaller phone that can be rooted/boatloader unlocked, get this. Root exploits are likely going to be harder to come by after 5.0. With this phone you don't have to worry about root exploits being closed with an OTA.

I received mine today - manufacture date is 9/2014 and I was able to unlock the bootloader in literally 3 minutes!!!

I noticed the guy is now selling them for $250. I will check the warranty status as soon as I activate the device.

Nice, thats a better deal than eBay. Plus its Amazon fulfilled so if there are any issues Amazon is much better to deal with than a random eBay seller.
