We hope you didn't rush to snag a Moto X Pure Edition for use on Verizon's network -- you'll be disappointed for the next few days. Early adopters speaking on Reddit and PrepaidPhoneNews say that Big Red is turning down subscribers trying to activate Motorola's giant device. The carrier just can't find the IMEI (the hardware identifier) needed to make things work, according to these reports. It's an odd problem, and a frustrating one when Verizon promised just last week that it would activate the Pure Edition. What gives? Thankfully, we've found out that this is only temporary.
Update (9/17): According to Verizon, activations should be working now, via the website or in-store.
