ePub books with Adobe's DRM is pretty device independent. Currently I can buy a book from Sony bookstore, B&N bookstore, Borders bookstore, or fictionwise.com and load them onto my Nook. I could also load them onto a Kobo reader, a Sony reader, a pandigital novel reader, etc. Amazon.com books can be read on the kindle. iBooks can be read on the iphone/ipad.

It's interesting that you said it was because of Verizon, because on my Droid Google Voice is allowed. I can't vouch for the "my 5" fave list removal, because I don't have a fave list.

Your post seems to be FUD, but I'll let others decide for themselves.
