Verizon is retiring the CDMA network and you may have seen notices in your invoice or as a pop up when making accessing your account. While they don’t plan to completely do away with the network until January 1st, 2021, some major changes will take effect on January 1st to encourage people to make a change even sooner. The biggest initial change that will impact our clients is that CDMA phones will not work internationally starting in January. Below is the notice from Verizon:
Starting January 1st, 2020, the following CDMA services will be discontinued:
- Roaming outside the US
- Like-for-like device swaps
- Device ID to device ID changes
Starting January 1st, 2021:
- CDMA support, service, and maintenance features (price plan change, suspend resume) will no longer be available
- After the 1-year extension expires, CDMA service will terminate for any device not migrated off the CDMA network.
