Re: They aren't
As advanced services mature, users will have to upgrade as the cell providers migrate the spectrum to LTE. This is the same as the move from analog to digital services. You will always have a portion of the users that will refuse to upgrade until the service is eliminated.
What the cell providers need to do is work with the FCC to announce a cutoff date that 2G and 3G services will no longer be available, then users will know that they will need to upgrade their equipment to use LTE. Better yet is that the FCC require the same service between all providers (the same version of LTE - No more CDMA or GSM).
