Default Verizon mobile ads and bandwidth caps, we pay for adds?

I Just got this in a email from Verizon about new privacy policies,
"You will receive mobile ads whether you participate or not, but under the advertising program, ads may be more relevant to you. If you have a Family SharePlan® or multi-line account, you must indicate your choice for each line. If you add a line or change a telephone number, you will need to update your privacy choices."

So with Verizon's new data caps I guess these new "mobile ads sent whether you participate or not " will count against our data use caps?

My guess is - yes. But, my guess is also that even if you viewed several thousand ads you'd barely scratch that 2 GB limit....

I've had some of the shoddiest reception in some areas around me where we do NOThave 4G, and ads still load in milliseconds....so, my guess is that, even with artwork, the actual size of each is relatively small.

True and I still have unlimited bandwidth but just the thought that some are paying for the bandwidth Verizon uses to download adds to their phone seems unethical.

What ads are you talking about?
