Yes, probably because they have this "call" and "sms" possibility. But I 
am quite sure, in your part of the world they must have possibility to 
get a plan, where "calls" and "texts" are prohibited, but Internet is 
unlimited, and just pay for it monthly fee.

Then, if their friends know how to use Internet for "calls" and "texts" 
they can refuse from using "phones"  as devices, like washing machines, 
designed for specific tasks, in this case - calls via carriers, and I 
see carriers gradually would become just an ISP's, not less and not more.
