Personally, I will wait for more options. Right now, with Verizon Wireless, in order to get the Xperia Play for $200, you have to have $70 in phone plans ($40 nationwide talk plus $30 smartphone data) and a two-year contract. I would much rather see it available on Virgin Media who have unlimited data plans starting at $25 a month with no contract.

A company representative did not immediately return our request for information about whether or not the phone would be offered without a contract and why they are requiring such a high monthly plan price.
