Verizon likes to have too much control over its handsets. On most devices, you can't do a damn thing without doing it through Verizon's "Get It Now" service. Email, Web surfing, GPS, photos, videos, ringtones, etc -- it's all on complete lockdown, requiring you to pay Verizon for the privilege of using these "extras." Until recently, Verizon all but completely crippled Bluetooth on most of its phones to prevent users from doing something as simple as, oh I don't know, transferring a photo over from a computer to use as wallpaper. If the iPhone had initially launched on Verizon, you can bet the App Store would never have happened. Of course, after seeing AT&T's success with Apple, it's no surprise Verizon might be willing to loosen up a bit.
