3G devices to be obsolete in 2022

Did you know that mobile phone companies plan to end 3g service, or third-generation network, in 2022? It’s true. This means that up to 10 million people will need new devices.

You and the person you care for may find yourselves without being able to use their 3G cell phones. That means 911 too.


How big a problem will this be, and what can we do not to ensure we stay connected with the ones we care for daily?
