Verizon Home Phone Connect will stop working Dec 31, ‘22

Verizon Home Phone Connect will stop working Dec 31, ‘22

Verizon announced earlier this year that they will be shutting down their 3G service on December 31, 2022.

That means that any Verizon devices that only work with 3G -- including the Verizon home phone connect -- will no longer work starting December 31, 2022.

The Verizon 3G shutdown affects millions of Americans who rely on devices like the Verizon Home Phone Connect to power their landline phones. As they shut down 3G, Verizon is also shutting down traditional copper wire phone service across the country.

The bottom line is, folks who want to continue using a landline phone will need to switch to a device and service plan that supports access to 4G and 5G coverage.

Click on the button below to check if your landline will be affected by the Verizon 3G Shutdown. It only takes a few seconds to get your results.

Are you looking to save your landline service?

Community Phone offers a similar landline service to Verizon’s Home Phone Connect. Community Phone's landline base operates on 4G and 5G service, as opposed to 3G, which Verizon uses and is retiring.

Just give me the highlights

  1. The Verizon Home Phone Connect, which works only on 3G, will not work after Verizon will shut down its 3G network on December 31, 2022.
  2. When Verizon shuts down their 3G service, the Verizon Home Phone Connect will no longer work.
  3. Since Verizon is also shutting down its copper-wire landline service across the country, your best bet to continue using your landline phone is to get a landline alternative that works with 4G and 5G. Community Phone is one of the best Verizon Landline Alternatives in the U.S
  4. Community Phone offers an alternative to traditional landline service that works like the Verizon Home Phone Connect, but connects you to the strongest cell towers in your area, both 4G and 5G.

Why is the Verizon Home Phone Connect being Phased Out?

The Verizon Home Phone Connect will stop working when the 3G network will be shut down, as it has to make way for 5G. 3G will quickly be a thing of the past as Verizon does not plan to rebuild the infrastructure. The company only wants to repurpose the existing infrastructure to support 5G.

When is Verizon Shutting Off the Phones?

Verizon will shut down its 3G service on December 31, 2022. By that time, every other major carrier will have already shut down their 3G service months earlier.

Verizon says that as customers move closer to the 3G shutdown date, they will experience degradation or complete loss of services if they are still continuing to access the 3G network. On the day of the 3G shutdown, the Verizon Home Phone Connect will stop working completely, and you will no longer be able to make or receive calls through your landline phone.

Don’t wait until the last day of the 3G network shutdown. Switch to Community Phone TODAY, to continue using your home phone!!

Why Should I Switch to Community Phone?

A landline is a vital for almost 100 million households in the United States. Verizon and other large carriers shutting down the 3G network and copper-wire service has left several people worried that they may lose their landline forever.

People are not left with many options, as for most carriers, landline service is not the primary focus. They're investing in expanding their fiber-optic internet service and building more infrastructure to broaden access to 5G cell service. This means your landline would become internet-based, more expensive, and would get bundled with things you don’t need.

At Community Phone, landline service is the company’s sole focus.

Is the Community Phone Landline Base Different from the Verizon Home Phone Connect?

Yes, it is different from the Verizon Home Phone Connect and better, as it does not operate off 3G.

The Community Phone landline base will connect your phone to the strongest network available in your area: 4G or 5G. You can also take your home phone with you, as the landline base is portable and will work anywhere in the U.S. if there is power and cell service (which is 99% of the locations in the U.S.). The built-in antennas in the base strengthen the signal in areas that have poor reception to give you crystal clear voice quality.
