Houston Chronicle I think this is a first for the US cell phone market? I would be curious to know what percentage of cell users use more than the 2500 minutes or whatever $100 would buy you on a metered plan? It seems that eventually, minutes will hit a point where plans over-provide, like how right now I pay for 1000 daytime minutes but come nowhere near using that, although I might use 1800-2000 minutes including evening/weekend talking. The plan is already only $40/mo, though, so I have little incentive to go to a lower minute plan. I wonder if, in five years or so, unlimited minutes will catch on in the way free nationwide long distance did, and most users would be on such plans?
