Wait, why would it go down?
No no; SMS should go down, iMessage up, as there are more and more iPhones / Macs sold
Your chart's telling me that iMessage is a minuscule fraction. With their insane prices, they shouldn't be worried about anything but the fact that it encompasses more than just phones, which SMS can't.
Not minuscule; chart says it's
was around 70B a month, US only. With your number of 1B iMessages per day... I'd wager that since 2008 SMS has declined with the uprise of smartphones and iMessage is being adopted - at whatever rate. Hell, WhatsApp probably does way more than iMessage, and it's being reflected by my local telco here in NL. BoD was actually shocked at the figures last year (which caused them to increase the price for 3G - and do a DPI, which is illegal; they were fined)
