Default [Q] Getting TMo applets on a Moto X Dev Ed phone

I've ordered a Moto X Developer's Edition. I'm a TMobile customer. While I expect I'll be using the pure Android OS that presumably is installed on the Dev Ed phone, I'm thinking I may want to add a few TMo features (wifi calling, visual voice mail) and maybe even at some point try the TMobile OS in its entirety (Sense 5? I dunno).

WIth my trusty HTC Sensation, which is a TMobile-issued phone, I've enjoyed being able to switch back and forth between pure Android and full-fledged TMobile Sense 4.x (and now even a preview of Sense 5), depending on my mood. I've also used a number of hybrid ROMs that incorporate some features of TMobile's custom OS. All have their advantages and disavantages, and I like to ROM-hop.

So, my question: Are there people out there who are stripping off desirable TMobile applets or are otherwise modding ROMs for use on a Moto X DevEd? I know nobody does this for the money, but I'm someone who likes to donate to these talented folks, btw.

Thanks.

This post is cute. T-Mobile doesn't make sense. HTC makes sense ui on all their android phones whether Verizon at&t or any other android phone carrier.

Moto is stock and that's all. Check android development section if there are any custom ROMs.

As far as their apps Google for them. I have visual voicemail on my nexus and the other T-Mobile app to make plan changes on the fly

Visual Voicemail is available on Play. WiFi Calling is not available on any phones not officially sold by T-Mobile, so there's no WiFi calling on the X.

Oh, yeah. I use ROMs with Sense so seldom that I forgot that it was HTC and not TMo.

(I might as well come clean here: I'm an old geezer. Just don't ask me who the president of the US is or what day it is.)

Thanks for the clarification.

Thank you for the clarification. If anybody figures out a way to get wifi calling on a DevEd phone, please holler.

It's easy to do WiFi calling, just not with the T-Mobile app on the Moto X. I use an app named GrooveIP and a Google Voice number. It is a different phone number but that could be an advantage or a disadvantage.
