Contracts that are Data and Text Messaging only, and at an affordable rate.
I doubt this will ever happen because you are so scared of losing that wonderful cash cow that is Long Distance and Local Airtime.
You can do this at Telus' little brother Koodo. Look at the prepaid plans
I did. The offerings are rather poor. $25 minimum for Text + 100mb of data. I get better than that with my current plan, and cheaper too.

As a company you are in the throws of dying or on the verge of obsolescence. The business model of being a voice and data provider are coming to an end. Cell phone technology has surpassed what you are offering for data services by a wide margin and it's time to catch up before you get dragged into the future or buried in the past.
