Still over priced price plans

Cheap handsets are fine.

But data access is still way too over priced for the people this phone is targetting! Carriers are shotting themselfs in the foot by being to greedy, would not more reasonable prices bring in a more realistic customer base?

"But data access is still way too over priced for the people this phone is targetting"

Definitely, but the situation is far better than it was just a few years ago.

I'd compare it to calls, they used to cost a ridiculous amount but nowadays they're much more reasonable in every country.

The thing slowing this down is a lack of competition, caused by phone locking and 2 year contracts. People can't easily switch carriers the way they can switch ISPs, so the prices stay high.
