    Just a warning for those who have not yet updated to ZV6, the throttle that was installed in the update is causing the play store to load exceedingly slowly. I'm going to flash back to ZV5 because of it, but I thought I would give everyone a heads up that the throttle does affect some vital functions.

    It's meant to throttle your 4G during peak times, as I understand, and keep track of your usage.

    No, it is meant to throttle heavy users, after you have used 2.5 GB for the month you are throttled. You should receive a text message letting you know if this has been applied to your phone.

    From VM's FAQ:

    Ah, thank you. I knew about that, but thought that throttling had already applied. I knew about the 2.5 gig cap, I didn't know it wasn't already in effect for that phone.
