Aren't text messages basically the most expensive way ever to send data?

(unless wolfram alpha's math is wrong) 160 bytes at 10 cents each is $62.50 per megabyte, for comparison, most phone data plans are $15 for 200MB.

I believe, if I remember correctly, that text messages fit in an allotted bandwidth between phone call frequences so the calls dont interfere with each other. So when text messaging was introduced, it literally cost them nothing. Because it squeezed through on unused frequencies. I think I saw it on TV.

This report is bogus:

"However, the study did not factor in the extra income networks received from mobile data costs because of increased internet usage resulting from social messaging."

Thus making the $13.9bn figure irrelevent because networks could have gained some of that money or possibly even double that from data usage.

That is how it works. It moves with the empty spots with calls.

Ya they didn't loose anything, the market changed and people stopped using their outdated overpriced service. That is all.

I wanted to charge a trillion dollars for a service that I already do anyways. Since you don't want to pay for it, I'm gonna go to news companies and complain that you cost me a trillion dollars in revenue.
