I just got the xperia play with android 2.3 and don't plan on ever activating it through a carrier. I'm using my home wifi for everything and all of that seems fine. The only problem that i'm having is when i use thw web browser to surf to google then click the signin button, i get an error page saying Web page not available. I can sign into hotmail... I can browse to any page except for the google account stuff. I am able to sync with the Accounts & Sync using my google email. I cannot access the google market, it gives same error, Web page not available I can install apk using my usb. I can play internet games like pocket legends. Do these google website pages require me to activate the phone? Is there a setting I need to set? Is there an update that i need?
