The cell phone masses aren't at play, just a few die-hards.
They will carry it and offer it, looking like good guys. They won't actually have anyone use/buy it and, therefore, be justified in their belief that they don't have to carry something similar again because there is no customer interest. That will be based on lack of sales/service which will be driven by the cost which will be overlooked by Verizon. See, we offered it and no one wanted it that's why we aren't offering it again/any more. Win - win for them.
Still don't see it happening. The people who care will just buy it unlocked directly from Google play. Others that don't really care/know the difference won't pay $15. Not to mention the negative press vzw would receive from tech news for even trying to charge $15 a month for something you can get for free. VZW wants to actually sell this phone too. If the leaks hold true this could be one of the best all around devices available.
