Apple may be planning to ditch carriers and offer its own wireless service

This is not really a new idea, but an analyst thinks that right now may be the best time possible for Apple to toss aside the pesky carrier system and begin to offer its own wireless service directly to iPhone and iPad customers...

Well, having in mind that Apple's current free cash is enought to buy the whole mobile industry, I do think that it is very possible for this to happen. They are the leaders in the last decade, after all. :)

I hope they do this. I'm so tired of the carriers trying to get more money out of us and taking unlimited data. I hope if Apple does do this they really make sure its what we want/need at a price that everyone could pay. Please let us have unlimited data, and have data be data. Text,E-mail, Web, Facetime over 3g/4g its all data. Then let the customer pick the minutes down to the minutes. Don't force us to pick from tiered plans. And merge the icloud backup packages into this plan maybe more people would pay for it, if say its "only" $20 more. Also there are many people that buy at retail now with Apple to not sign a contract. I'm never signing a contract. I'm going to us my unlimited data with verizon till they take it, then I'll find another carrier.
