Most people also pay only a few bucks a month for flat rate local phone service at home, and yet they pay more for cell service. There's a reason for this too.
well said. You have a good point. My area of contention is the price differentiation between devices. On my old Motorola V551 I paid 1 cent per KB. With Blackberry, I have to subscribe to a rate plan. With the price of the blackberry plan, I could have used my old motorola to download data until it burst into pieces.
