    Now in January I'll be upgrading my line to the Verizon edge and I'll be getting the iPhone 6 plus, which would be my first iPhone. Right now I have a Droid Ultra and Verizon has google wallet blocked on this phone from what I have seen online forcing me to use Softcard which is Verizon's own app. Now for my question is Verizon doing the same thing forcing us to use Softcard on the iPhone?

    Verizon Apple Pay works super great, besides, Softcard won't work on iPhone because you need a special case for it

    So don't worry :-) get your 6 Plus and Apple Pay will work flawlessly

    Ditto on using Apple pay with my Vz iPhone. No issues. Works like a charm.

    If Verizon wasn't letting iPhone users use Apple Pay, they wouldn't still be selling the iPhone right now.

    Yep. Apple pay doesn't care what carrier you are on and Apple would put up with that kinda sh*t from Verizon.

    Softcard isn't Verizon's proprietary app. All carriers have it available. It was called Isis until the terrorist group surfaced and then they changed it to Softcard. Unfortunately, it doesn't work on the iPhone unless you have a special case. I've been using Apple Pay, and I actually find it easier. So, I just used the debit card that Softcard sent me so I could get all of the money I deposited on it, and now I just use Apple Pay.

    Apple has a lot more clout with the carriers than Google and Android OEMs. Apple would never allow them to block Apple Pay. Apple maintains complete control or the carrier doesn't get the "privilege" of selling the iPhone. The carriers cave to Apple's demands while holding Android OEMs at their mercy.

    No but they are owned by Verizon. "Softcard (formerly Isis Mobile Wallet) is a joint venture between AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon in the mobile payment space, announced on November 16, 2010." Via http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Softcard

    OP, as others have stated, your days of Verizon dictating what apps you can and can't use on your phone are over as Apple has full control. The biggest "downside" of iOS versus Android from a control perspective that I can think of is how iOS controls your data usage. On android you could use cellular data to download a 4GB movie or a 500mb app, iOS will not allow a movie to be downloaded via cellular or an app over 100mb without jailbreak. There may be other work arounds bedsides jailbreak but none that I am aware of, although anyone correct me, please, I want to use my cellular data lol.

    Just hook through your iPad or iPhone or vise versa with instant hotspot and you can then download a large file.
