Verizon CDMA Network retirement will be completed by December 31, 2022.
Verizon is decommissioning its 3G CDMA network by December 31, 2022. Unless your company has a special contract, affected device lines will be suspended on the first day of your December 2022 bill period. For example, if your bill date is December 5, you will lose CDMA service on December 5, 2022, and CDMA service billing will end. To stay connected, you will need to upgrade your 2G, 3G, or 4G Non-VoLTE devices.
CDMA voice device types that will be impacted: smartphones, basic and rugged phones, BlackBerry, Palm, and wireless Home Phone Connect desktop phones (not including One Talk), iPhones 4 and 5, and early Samsung Galaxy phones.
IoT (Internet) data device types that will be impacted: modems, routers, tablets, laptops, scanners, health care equipment monitoring, law enforcement geo-location monitors, ambulance medical equipment monitors, security cameras, electronic payments, facilities monitoring, telemetry, electricity meter readers, vending machines, electronic signs, waste management monitoring, and survey equipment.
Network Extenders (also called eFemto cells) that will be impacted: Samsung 1X and EVDO network extenders that provide extra coverage to underground or campus areas.
