Why kill feature phones at all?

Put down the every-company-in-cellular-koolaid, feature phones will never fully die and the idea that everyone Simply Must Have Smartphones is what every company in cellular misleads you to believe...I wonder why?
Then if your really cool you'll also need the new shinier one that's eleven percent faster and has 7 percent greater pixel density in 9 months, and you should be happy to pay more for the privilege of paying even more again to "upgrade". Gee thanks.
Lots of people don't need a smartphone, don't want a smartphone and absolutely shouldn't have to make up for the losses carriers incur due to smartphone subsidies but at least there are finally low cost actually-use-the-phone plans coming out now.
There are still many out there who...

There were feature phones offered. They bought the smartphone because they wanted it.

Why would anyone use a cell phone to call people. Calling people takes so much time and effort. Just send a quick text and move on to the next thing.

The only way to kill feature phones...

...is to have plans as cheap as the ones feature phones are on now. My daughter is on a feature phone because it would cost considerably more to upgrade her plan for use with a smartphone.
What company are you with? For most companies its only $10 extra.

And a lot of people want the simplicity of a basic phones. Smartphones require a bigger degree of a learning curve.
