People are stupid and will continue to be Prepaid MVNO's have existed for some time now. Most of these include unlimited messaging, some even charge no tax at all.

Big biz rules the day, and at the end of the day the powers that be know this. People complain about costs going up and value going down, but these same people don't bother to research and dare explore a world of choice and value.

AT&T, Verizon and Sprint make my head spin every time they cook up "innovative pricing" for the same bullshit, yet their subscriber numbers don't lie. They're the big players so they must be the best, and at the end of the day that's what people care about; the brand. And of course, the subsidized product to go along with it.
