said by DaveDude:whoa whoa, i think some folks may take issue with that. while i agree with your idea, not everyone understands what these phones actually cost.
The problem is two fold , gsm vs cdma, and subsidized phone. There needs to be a law that all carriers use LTE, and can no longer offer subsidized phones. The Verizon app store, is just an failed attempt at relevance. With yahoo, google, and amazon, why would i bother with anything verizon has to offer ?
