Since powerful supervision on the mobile valueadded services is lacking nowadays, the mobile market goes into a tendency of being rather chaotic. This research will analyze the behavior of both the service providers and mobile operators, with game theory model to be established. Moreover, the Nash Equilibrium will also be considered which shows that the costs and extent of the mobile operator’s supervision besides the penalty for the service provider’s being caught will definitely influence the probability for service providers to violate the rules. On the other hand, the proportion of illegal gains shared by mobile operators and the penalty degree for service providers may be the main factors that affect the mobile operator’s supervision choices. At last suggestions are made on the service provider’s strategic choices.
