	Well.... that's not really "easy". Remember, this is a mobile phone. So it's either completely closed or closed enough to make a project like that exceedingly difficult. So unless you happen to have a truly open phone (say, one running openmoko?) it's close enough to impossible that the carriers don't worry about it. And it'll probably take a lot of openmoko-based phones doing this before it becomes worth their time to try to plug the "hole".

i'm sure, if it was that easy to circumvent the restrictions imposed on a  
5$ plan, t-mobile would have dropped it already.
