With Apple, even if VZW sells 3 Android phones for every IPhone, it's still an awfully powerful OEM that could always be a threat to your business model (well, and obviously Apple could afford to buy VZW if they wanted). But I think VZW is going to have a much bigger problem with Google before long. Google getting into VoIP is a game changer, and people will eventually reduce their voice plans (if not eliminate them) and VZW will have no choice but to require a voice with data plan (obviously they already do) or raise their data prices. Probably the biggest argument for keeping grandfathered status, although there's nothing really to prevent VZW from raising prices or ending grandfather status. Fortunately I'm already on a minimum voice plan, but VZW may get me with VoLTE but we'll see how that goes. I don't need more than 450 minutes of voice, VoIP or otherwise.
