Indeed it does!! Verizon's CDMA Xperia Play on Page Plus works great & they have recently reduced their data fees. ($15/100mb)
Xperia Play IOTA activated & runs flawless on PagePlus network.
Extremely pleased to confirm that Verizon's hot new Xperia Play /Station phone
Activated IOTA on PagePlus & all features run flawlessly, right outta the box!!
Easy online activation @ kittywireless or free activation at pageplusdealer
Activated easily OTA within 10 minutes with working 3G, phone & text.
The VZW subscription apps (bloatware) will not work -- such as vcast media manager, navigator. etc)
However included games work (require no subscription). The Xperia Play app zaps you to VZW Vcast, which doesn't play nice with PP, but the games are also readily available for 3G/wifi download via Android Market or various websites/forums. Yay!
Amazon Wireless is offering contract free (choose VZW replacement phone option) for $500 +tx & free 2 day shipping (vs $99 w/2 yr VZW contract & $350 ETF).
Price is $100 less than anywhere i've seen online. Be sure to select CDMA version so PP can activate
Android honeycomb is blazingly fast & the graphics are incredible.
Data management is great so far as android disables 3G while Wifi is on, & we are lucky enough to have wifi most of the time. Data connection is not necessary to play the games once downloaded.
VZW individual plan for this cool device was about $100/month w/only 450 minutes
Instead we are on PP 1200tnt for $29 month - 100mb data.
The $70 more per month that we would have paid VZW in 4-5 months covers the cost of purchasing phone without contract discount.
Also found great phone insurance plan with WorthAve for $59 year.
Hoping those rumours of more data availability on PP are true & imminent
