Customers buying a new Moto X through Moto Maker now have the opportunity to choose Verizon as their carrier. Prices start at $99.99 for a 16GB model with a plastic back panel when customers take a new two-year contract.

The new Moto X┬áhas been available through Moto Maker for a little while now, but AT&T had a short period of exclusivity. That’s has now ended, so customers can now choose Verizon instead of Big Red if that’s a better option for them.

In addition to the black and bamboo backs you’ll find in Verizon stores, Moto Maker offers a much greater┬árange of color options, including turquoise, purple, royal blue, and dark teal. For an extra $25, customers can choose one of four leather backs, in addition to walnut, ebony, and teak.

The price will rise again by $50 if customers choose to increase the amount of internal storage to 32GB, but customizations like engraving and colored trims are available at no extra charge.

It’s worth noting that customers who choose a white display, which is now on back order, will currently be waiting around four weeks for their device.
