They will talk their way out of it toss them some money and be done with the whole thing.
Which do you think is going to cost more money?
(1) Going through months of litigation with the FCC over a violation of some rules that were very clearly written.
(2) Allowing (a very vocal) 1-3% of their userbase to use their phones as they see fit.
It's a no-brainer. Telecoms pretty much do whatever they want to consumers until the FCC comes knocking, and then they act like little kids who get caught in the act. I'm fairly certain that if the FCC comes knocking on Verizon that they will fold quickly.
