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.
