Unfortunately, while you do get an ipv6 address, mobile terminated data
doesn't work, so you don't have to worry about this.  It is firewalled by
Verizon.

I actually tried to set up a VPN on a LTE data card using the ipv6 address
since the IPV4 one is behind carrier grade NAT.  I found out the hard way
that was a no-go, either.

One more tip:  IPv6 will work over the legacy 3g network.  Don't ask me
much about it, but it "tunnels" it using eHRPD to the same IP/IPv6 headend
to enable seamless EVDO/LTE handover.
