Unless the update is rather large, like maybe a 4.x revision, then a more scheduled update may be necessary, even still the Gnex is going to be a very small percentage of VZ's phones in use.
you are missing his point
Unapproved software on their network is something they are not too fond of.
It's their equipment on their network. It's not like they are going to squelch any updates. They just may have it pass internal testing first before allowing it to be pushed to their equipment
