PlayStation Vita 3G Carrier Locked
Seems AT&T and Sony's machine are joined at the hip. Don't go breaking them up now, ya here?
OK, so you're ready to buy a PlayStation Vita 3G ($299) February 22 and plan to purchase a monthly data plan from Verizon, right?
Silly gamer. That's impossible. Actually, we'll stop short of saying that, because the hacking community can do crazy things.
For now, though, you can only purchase subscriptions through AT&T. In fact, the company worked closely with Sony on the SDK to avoid such foolishness.
So there it is. Don't even try and pop a another carrier's SIM card into the device, or it's curtains. Curtains!
