People spend about 25 minutes on average per day on their smartphone surfing the internet, 17 minutes on social networking, 16 minutes on music, and 14 minutes on playing games.  That’s not including tasks that uses less time than making phone calls.  What about for making phone calls?  Well, according to O2, making phone call accounts for less a tenth of the total amount of time people spend on their smartphone—12 minutes. 

If you want to analyze it even further, just take 12 minutes and times that by 30 and you’ll find out that (based on O2’s data) people are spending roughly 360 minutes on their smartphones making or taking calls per month

So unless people have carry overs on their smartphone plan, the thousands of minutes they’re paying for are going to waste every month.  Now you know why carriers offer high minute plans, and charging outrageous amounts for the data.  Even they know you will most likely NOT use your phone for making or taking calls.
