comment Ubuntu Dual Boot “Failed to get SU Permissions”
Installing Super user alone is not enough to grant you root. What device are you using? Have you looked at How do I root my Android device? for instructions on rooting your particular device manually? Is the Ubuntu installer supposed to do this for you?

comment Disabling Verizon Galaxy S4 from sending usage data back to Verizon
I can't imagine a situation where a carrier would be relying on the phone to communicate bandwidth usage in that way. All they're doing is monitoring the bandwidth used by your device as they handle it (again, it flows through their pipes, they can already track the bandwidth). Forcing the device to report its own usage somehow would be substantially more prone to error, and possibly even spoofing, which would greatly endanger the data packages sold by carriers (and therefore, their profit margins) which rely on accurate bandwidth accounting.

comment Disabling Verizon Galaxy S4 from sending usage data back to Verizon
I'd press your friend for details, honestly. I doubt your phone is "sending" the data usage to Verizon at all. They're simply tracking your data usage themselves, on their switches and infrastructure. After all, they're effectively your ISP when using your phone's data connection. All of your traffic is travelling through them, and they (presumably) have lots of network monitoring tools in place that track packet destinations, origin, times, etc. A VPN might work to obfuscate this, if you're looking for something like that.
