Will your electronic/safety device be affected?
Many 2G networks have already phased out, and most providers are in the process of “sunsetting” (closing down) their 3G networks, as well.
If you and/or your loved one still have a cell phone or emergency device which operates from a 2G or 3G network, you’ll need to upgrade soon!
Here are a few dates shared by the most common carriers:
> Sprint’s CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) 2G and 3G networks began shutting down last month (Jan 2022).
> AT&T has already shut down its 2G network and will completely shut down its 3G network this month (Feb 2022).
> T-Mobile plans to cancel its 3G network in April 2022.
> Verizon has already phased out its 2G networks and will complete its 3G network shutdown by the end of 2022.
If your carrier is not listed, check with them directly to find out which network your device uses and if it is one which will become obsolete.
Because your safety matters!
