Macgasm: Carriers had no idea iMessages was coming, nor should they have

I completely agree with Joshua Schnell.

I despise SMS, because they are limited, unreliable and ridiculously expensive for customers, while they cost the carriers close to nothing.
I don’t mean to tell carriers what they should be allowed to charge for, but they shouldn’t be surprised when a company comes along, offering their customers a cheaper solution.

As of now iMessages only work between iOS users, which means that messages to users of any other mobile OS will still be set as SMS, but it’s a great first step.
