BillShrink Compares Carriers – T-Mobile Customers love SMS, hate Data

By: Shawn August 23rd, 2009 just released a new study on U.S. Wireless Carriers. Taking a look at carriers that excel in overall price, messaging, data usage, minute usage, and average wireless bill costs around the country, BillShrink gives us a good look at the Wireless industry competition.

It looks as if this was a brief compilation of user data that was ¬†collected over time at If you are looking for a study to help you compare user satisfaction, feature add-on prices, or best service-for-cost, don’t use this study. Meant as an informative look into the Wireless industry, you will find that it seems as if no carrier is a clear winner, although T-Mobile users clearly use the most SMS message. If you were wondering why T-Mobile was the last to the punch with their 3G network, take a look at the graph of data usage. Although it looks as if T-Mobile is trying to lose the reputation of being the last carrier to consider if you are a heavy data user by already being hard at work on their up and coming 4G network.

T-Mobile has partnered with BillShrink in the past to promote their service as the lowest costing service in the wireless industry. That said, seems to operates independently, without any allegiance to a specific carrier. ¬†Hit the jump to see the results of BillShrink’s study.

    The following seems to be true for all the carriers…
    Average usage: less than 1000 minutes
    Average data: around 30mb
    Average texts: less than 1000.

    Now, Average bill: around $112

    Yet you can get 1000 minutes, 1000 texts and 30mb of data for $30 with Straight Talk – on the Verizon network, mind you, so this is not some small local carrier. The coverage is truly national and network quality is the best.

    So, why are we signing those contracts again?

    Something has to be done to stop phone companies forcing people into contracts.

    I have an old verizon phone I want to move onto their network on my in-laws friends and family plan, they want me to sign a new 2 year contract with a new phone the phone selection was poor, and they only offered a $50 discount for the contract phone. The phone costs about $20 -30 at other outlets but in the verizon store its $70-rebate = $20.

    Cant I just sign up buy the phone and go month to month? You would think so, but alas thats not available.
