Re: Vzw Xperia Play won't get ICS!!!???

you are not going to get the update, you are still on 2.3.3, in other words verizon's play is 6 or so updates behind, I hardly doubt that verizon will update this phone, considering that there are better phones coming soon and/or will be available quite in few weeks

Re: Vzw Xperia Play won't get ICS!!!???

I doubt Verizon will get the s3 seeing as they don't get the first two. But I have a thing for stock Android. Every phone I've owned is vanilla Android.
