Its no wonder that people are abandoning SMS/MMS in favour of data based products when they are so unreliable and disconnected with other operators.

What do you think will happen to the volume of *MS's sent with the massive uptake with smartphones at the moment?

The uptake of smartphones in your social circles might be massive, but they're outsold many to one by dumb phones.

Most of them would own one more more stonerphones too, for things like going out on the p**s, putting a cheap sim in when selling a car, texting crazy ladies etc, so yes there are probably lots of $50 pieces of blister pack junk sold but they dont get much use.

Hell, I know someone that bought one when in another town because it was only a few bucks more than just a new charger at the same shop to use as they had left their charger at a previous place they were selling at. Once a phone is $40-$50 they really are disposable items, so sales of them should be a lot higher than decent phones.
