We estimate that each wireless customefreer generates .33 cents in revenue per day for text messages which is roughly a $10 billion dollar per year business for AT&T or $30 million dollars per day. Its also pretty ironic that AT&T (NYSE: T) pays $10 billion dollars per year in dividends. Coincidence or a house of cards that is wait to fall? Here are 10 other reasons why charging for text messaging is a scam.
What if you could save $60 - $240 per year in text messages with free text messaging services? The average AT&T customer sends out 621 text messages per month which is approximately 20 messages per day. The cost of text messaging is .33 cents per day which does not sound like a lot. Free text messaging is growing with companies like Facebook, Google Voice and Apple getting into the game. Our thesis is that the handset and software manufactures Apple, Google & Microsoft will soon be getting into the data delivery business and will be subsiding messaging with mobile advertisements.
