Kilobytes for Minutes?

I've got a smartphone on Cingular that I use more for data than for
voice. As a result, I pay extra for a data plan, and have lots of
minutes left over every month. I'd really like it if Cingular made
those two commodities fungible -- I'd happily trade one of my bucket
voice minutes for every kilobyte (or SMS).

They don't seem to offer such a plan. Does any carrier?



[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I thought either Cingular or Cellular
One offered an unlimited data transfer package for some sum of money
each month. You'd have to ask them if 'unlimited' actually means
'unlimited' or not. PAT]
