I'll tell you why, because for most people, making calls is merely one of the things they do on their phone, and in many situations, they do it less than simply using email or texting. This is how many people I know are - in fact, I know people who use GB of data but only use about 100 minutes of talk a month.

You must have seen my phone bill! ;) That is what my usage pattern looks like, along with a few thousand texts per month.

But, those 50-100 voice minutes I use each month are critical. If I was stuck with a device that was rock-solid on the texting/data front, but wouldn't allow me to reliably communicate by voice when it became necessary, it would be a broken device as far as I was concerned. And when that has happened to me in the past, I moved to a working device.
