Unfortunately the Verizon CEO is probably right
The original iPhone wasn't a big hit when it was $400 with a $20 data plan. When it became a $200 phone with a $30+ data plan, it became a smash hit. I much preferred the former.
The only thing that might change things is that modern touch screen phones last longer (less physical buttons to wear down, improvements in scratch resistant screens), so some might be enticed to move to a lower price point if they take their existing phones with them.
