So it's safe to say over half the phones in the hands of Verizon customers can only use 2G and 3G but Verizon is just supposed to cut them off?
AT&T has done exactly this... moved existing 850mhz services to 1900mhz without telling anybody. You go to bed with perfect signal and wake up the next morning with next to nothing.
Verizon has always handled this sort of thing in a manner that does not adversely impact existing customers. AT&T? Not so much...
