Let's be honest, most apps from cable and satellite providers are junk. You don't have any choice but to use them, though. It's not that the Verizon FiOS app is bad, but it's still rather lacking. At least with today's update it adds a few new features. Maybe it's time to give it another look.

[APK Teardown] Upcoming Google Play Services v6.7 Schedules Android One OTAs For Off-Peak Hours, Adds Experimental Activity-Based Personal Unlocking

If you've ever gone to a foreign country with a carrier-branded phone, or tried to use that phone on a different operator in the US, you've probably encountered the problem many have: it's locked.
