Cellphone Carriers Face Pressure Over Texting

Growth in the volume of text messaging is slowing sharply, just as new threats emerge to that lucrative source of wireless carrier profits.

SMS is dead. Long live data-based messaging!

Texting is a service that costs next to nothing, yet costs go up and up, and the carriers force us to buy expensive $20 bucket plans if we don’t want to get gouged by outrageous overage charges.

Good riddance.
