Vodaphone is the second UK carrier to delay the release of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play.
According to a customer message forwarded to VG247, the company stated that "Sony Ericsson have advised us that they will not be able to supply the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play to meet the original launch date of 1 April."
Last week 02 said it would not be releasing the new phone handset - which supports PSone games - due to bugs in the software.
Vodafone said it is currently unable to provide an alternative release date for the phone.
"We are working closely with Sony Ericsson to ensure your phone is delivered as soon as possible and we will be in touch again with specific timescales when we know more. We appreciate this is disappointing and are doing our very best to resolve this as quickly as possible."
