    Touche. Nice. Probably so. And it will be illegal to root and turn off location history.

    Yep, probably so.
    Sad thing is with all the commercials we don't buy one thing they push.

    Haha I go one step further. I specifically won't buy anything that is forced in my face on my phone, even if I want it! But, let's be honest, I don't really want any of it.

    Verizon has a plan to make the Android bloatware problem worse | Ars Technica

    Seriously people just vote with your wallet and leave. Things are going to get worse.
    I actually wouldn't have a big problem with that, as long we could delete them. BlackBerry has left me with a bunch of worthless, (to me) apps that I can't even delete. And I paid cash for a Factory, Shop BB device.

    I'm willing to bet that you can't.

    If you notice in the article someone is saying to not go with this VZW scam, that users can just delete the bloatware.
    Here is my question, downloading an app or updates for that app goes against your data count, isn't that illegal to force an app and its data usage onto your customers, aren't you kind of forcing a burden onto their account with out their permission/consent? Don't know but sounds illegal to me!
    Well, they've already partnered with Slacker Radio. I cannot think of any apps that would have wide-spread appeal that are not already on users' phones.

    As for data, Verizon would likely not charge it against your monthy usage. They have been playing around with sponsered content for a little while now, where you could stream You Tube all day, for example, as long as you also watch the sponsor's adverts, too. Verizon claims that if you sit through those commercials in their entirity then data usage, like for You Tube or even perhaps Netflix, would not be charged against your account.

    I've been in contact with Verizon through an FCC complaint. In their response to the FCC that specifically wrote that they "do not have an estimated release date of the Marshmallow software for Blackberry Priv users."

    Bottom line, don't hold your breath for security or OS updates from Verizon. They've written off Priv users.

    FCC cares absolutely nothing about your OS, they are looking into security updates.
    If you start getting security updates, the OS update will kinda come along with them at some point.
