As customers rushed to purchase their handsets, the Moto Maker site gradually lost most of its functionality to a point that customers no longer were able to get through with their orders. Seeing what was going on, Motorola was forced to cancel the deal. Needless to say, many customers were deeply disappointed. However, the company handle the crisis with style.
