I bought my Play through EBay for about $320 myself - of course wasn't new but came with everything plus a case. I almost had one that went $375 came with the docking station.

Rogers based - paid $15 to get it unlocked for other networks (not unlocked bootloader) and rooted. Currently running the UK Rom.

I just purchased a Xperia Play myself for Verizon for $150 which I thought was a great price considering the ESN was clean and the potential the phone has. Loving it so far.

afaik only telstra units and google io units are unlockable, i paid $445AU for my new telstra unit about a month ago.

i wasnt sure that the bootloader would be unlockable when i bought it, but i had the feeling it would be based on telstras history since they operate the only 850mhz network in australia..anyways, it paid off....damn happy.

^^ cool!

Yeah, I'm just waiting for my skin protector to come in before I start playing with the phone.

I also noticed that letstalk.com is offering the Verizon xperia play for $0 with 2yr new activation, if anyone is interested in that.

Back to protectors; I heard that all SE xperia phones have some sort of film on the glass that can be peeled off. Are they meant to be left on? I am just wondering if I should peel it off before applying my skin protector on it.

I paid $30 at a kiosk to get my phone protection (full body) I heard there's a film on them but not sure what the scoop was. Mine was used but 90% sure previous owner didn't remove any protection on it and my new screen protection hasn't caused any issues whatsoever. I'd say your PROBABLY safe but hopefully someone else knows better then I
