Default Has verizon blocked large apps from play store?

I could not download most of the apps after I got my phone. Turned on Wifi and they suddenly started downloading.

Anyone know if verizon has blocked large apps over their network?

The worst part is i don't see a setting *ANYWHERE* to allow large apps over lte.

Anyone know anything about this? For once i hope i am doing something wrong and there is a setting i didn't see somewhere.

I ran into that.. I think. It was stalling on an update. I stopped it then restarted it. It produced the pop up that you uncheck to allow it to download large apps over the network. I searched but couldn't find the setting outside of reproducing the circumstances by uninstalling the Zoe update and doing it again.

Verizon can't do this without deep packet inspection, and that would not be worth it. Besides, they let you stream over lte, why would they block large apps? They don't. I bet its a sense feature that is embedded into the framework. I believe it should pop up with a warning asking you to enable downloading large apps over LTE
