Sony Now Allowing Verizon Xperia Play Bootloader Unlock
Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve brought you news on bootloaders on Verizon getting unlocked. Verizon is notorious for making OEMs lock their bootloaders before releasing phones to the public. Apparently, there is at least one phone they don’t care about anymore, the Sony Xperia Play. It can now be unlocked via Sony’s bootloader unlocker website.
XDA Forum Member dt674 found that the Verizon version can now be unlocked on the website, whereas before it was unsupported. As dt674 explains:
Good news for all of you R800x users. Sony has finally added MEID support for unlocking your phone through their website.
I just went through the instructions on the Sony’s website for getting the unlock code and then followed Ridder’s guide and the install ran without any trouble.

This is great news for those still carrying around the now discontinued Play. The process is very similar to unlocking other Sony devices. It has been confirmed by other forum members that this is not only possible but that it works. So if you want to get that bootloader unlocked, check out the original thread.[Thanks to XDA Senior Member Leraeniesh for the tip!]
