The Motorola Razr 2023 is being carried and heavily discounted by three carrier owned prepaid brands, Boost Mobile (DISH), Metro by T-Mobile, and AT&T's Cricket Wireless. Verizon Wireless is the only major carrier to not offer the device at a deep discount through one of its prepaid brands. Verizon typically doesn't offer as wide a selection of free or deeply discounted devices through its prepaid brands like the other carriers do, so this isn't surprising.
Motorola released the Razr 2023 days ago and it officially began shipping through Motorola on October 20th. It has a list price of $699.99. As previously reported by BestMVNO, its release is notable as it's the first ever foldable phone to be carried by Cricket Wireless.
