It has nothing to do with subsidizing the cost of the phone. Most carriers are demanding some sort of data plan on any phone that has data access capability because they quickly got tired of eating the bill when some nitwit runs up a $10k phone bill at the ridiculous pay as you go rates. The carriers want customers on a data plan so the carrier gets the revenue stream to support their high speed data network.
Data pricing WILL come down -- just like the cost of texting already did come down -- but it is going to be another year or two before data prices become rational for families.
