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 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.
If you use the Verizon Home Phone Connect or are considering purchasing one, read on to see how this shutdown will affect you, and most importantly, what you can do to prepare.
