"waiting to load up 41.00 area"
Smart phones and data in general will grow for a long time.

Somebody like private equity firms may buy a chunk from VOD -- VZ has voting control anyway so 45% is not much different in terms of control than 25%.
I think you may be correct on the drop relative to AAPL, however, Samsung offers a great phone, so I don't think that will effect phone sells. Too many choices and people need to talk on the phone...it's just which phone. If it's the AAPL effect, it'll be temporary...if it's a leaked revenue concern, then it will be a little longer to recover.
