Verizon and Motorola’s 5G Moto Mod is available for preorder starting on March 14th


Verizon has officially announced that it will launch its 5G mobile network on April 11 in Chicago and Minneapolis. Next to that will be the airline's first 5G smartphone: the Moto Z3 Mod Moto Z3, promised for a long time, which will cost $ 349.99 at retail.

The 5G Moto Mod is exclusive to Verizon and the Moto Z3, and orders will start on March 14. Verizon wants customers to make an advance order: offer the Moto Mod 5G for only $ 50, which is a fairly high discount of the price of $ 350. You must have an active Moto Z3 in your Verizon account to buy the Moto Mod , or else you must buy one at the same time you buy the modular accessory.

While there's not a lot of 5G phones out there to compare them to that price of $ 350 it's not exactly an encouraging sign. (The Z3 only costs $ 480 to start.)

Verizon is also offering some deals on the Moto Z3 on March 14 just to start. Add a new service line to a Verizon device payment plan that day and you'll get a free Moto Z3. Customers who already have lines on Verizon can also upgrade their phones to a Moto Z3 for $ 10 a month for 24 months, which essentially equals half of the usual retail price of $ 480. None of those deals come with the Moto Mod 5G, so you must still pay the additional $ 50 to pre-purchase with your phone.
