Thinking about picking up a new Motorola Moto X Pure Edition but wondering whether it will work with Verizon’s network? Fear not, the carrier has reportedly made it clear that the smartphone will have no issues with activation.

According to a statement given to Droid Life, Verizon customers should be able to activate the unlocked handset with a service plan. Moreover, existing customers who already have a nano-SIM can simply insert it into the device.

We had hoped there would be no issue with this, of course, especially since Motorola proudly says the phone “works on on all major networks”. Then again, who knows when it comes to dealing with Verizon and its whole certification process?

If interested in ordering the unlocked handset, you can head to Motorola’s website to pick one up. What’s more, you can customize one of these through the Moto Maker with prices starting at $399.

We expect to have a review unit shortly and can’t wait to check out Motorola’s latest flagship experience. What about you? Are you anxious to try one of these for yourself?

  1. Got mine today! had “problems” activating the phone with Verizon! was at first told it would not work by both the store staff and “verified” when they called the technical support line! I finally called and got someone who knew a “work around” activated it (new sim card) with my old phone, but had the sim in the new moto x pure! It worked! If you already have a micro SIM card you should be able to just put it in, but I had a larger SIM, ($25 for new micro SIM)…
