Facebook (FB) is rolling out a service that will allow Android app developers to charge users via their phone bills, rather than by requiring credit card info. The service, which already has the support of major U.S. and international carriers, appears to be the result of Facebook's acquisition of Bango. Android developers have long complained Android's credit-card input process has hurt their ability to monetize their apps.

    IMO it's a huge mistake for any company to run its charges through a bureaucratic utility company. It's a great way to frustrate and ultimately lose customers.
