If the way billing worked made and sort of sense, I think people would be open to paying. But as it stands, you pay $20+ per month and whatever you don't use gets taken away. As such, you are required to babysit your plan. If you are not using it one month, you must cancel everything and set it back up for when you do plan on using it. Why not just charge a flat rate for the data that is being used? Or require that a couple GB of credit be purchased at a time, and once that credit is used up, you are automatically billed for another chunk of data. The wireless carrier has nothing to lose and everything to gain here. They are not dealing with subsidizing the product or dealing with lengthy contracts or even credit checks.
