Some people just don’t want to let go.
There are tons of reasons not to update your phone. Although I almost disagree with the word “telephone”. Sure, it’s part of what it does, but for most people that thing in your pocket is much more than that. But that’s not the point … Some people just won’t give up on the one they’ve always worn.
Maybe because it pays off, or because they’re afraid to upgrade and get lost in technology. My sister-in-law had an iPhone 5 until about a year and a half ago, until Apple stopped offering new software updates, and it slowly and painfully dies. It’s about to happen to a lot of these refractories. 3G will be gone forever.
What’s the problem if 3G goes missing?
Well, basically your phone won’t work. Like, at all. You will not be able to make or receive calls at all. In fact, you won’t even be able to call 911 with it. Its data won’t work either. You are basically going to have an old Nokia clipboard. But the “good” news is that you are at least receiving this warning?
Technically, everything stops on January 1, but vendors are taking a more measured approach to blackout. AT&T customers can expect the final death bell in February 2022, and T-Mobile’s 3G service will be phased out around June / July. Sprint will even shut down some of its 4G service by July. Verizon gives longest deadline, ending 3G by Dec.31, 2022, according to WMTW.
For real … it’s time to move into 2010, let alone 2021.
The only thing you can do is upgrade your phone. That’s it. You will need it. There is no longer any need to “stick with the man” by keeping this dino-phone. Operators will likely offer offers on upgrades to new phones for 3G devices. And talk to your supplier. There is the thinnest possibility that your device is not affected, but I doubt it.
Good luck entering the new age, folks. It will be a very digital race from now on. By the way … you can download a new version of Snake from the App Store, if that’s what keeps you connected, haha.
