    I want this phone badly, however; currently it’s only available in Sony stores.
    Yes you can get a plan through Rogers Canada, though again, it must be through Sony stores.
    Silly if you ask me.
    …irritating as well because where I live, Sony stores are no longer open.
    The closest place is Toronto, approx. 5 hours from me.
    Any word on a release date to become available from Rogers Canada directly?
