not just phones....
I agree with the sentiment of your post, but regarding this:
said by anon anon :Keep in mind that phones are not the only devices using the old networks. OnStar, wireless security systems, tracking bracelets for criminals/defendants, time servers, etc. All of these devices will have to be upgraded before the old networks can be completely shut down.
Verizon will eventually re-farm their 2G and 3G spectrum and so will at&t. That is several years away. No only because it takes time but because also the small % of luddites will bitch to the nearest congressperson if these companies try to makes their 2G flip phones non functional.
