Death Star is shutting down its 2G by years end. They have migrated 6 million customers in the last year 12 months... Only "Internet of things" devices remain. Most consumers connect to AT&T via 3G and 4G. I guess that makes sense... I remember back when AT&T bought some of those Alltel assets, they skipped the 2G and went with 3G and/or LTE. Folks who didn't have 3G phones were screwed in the Alltel areas. So if you have an ancient 2G phone, time to get a 3G or LTE phone. http://www.wirelessweek.com/news/2016/04/t-planning-shut-down-its-2g-network-end-2016 Sent from a telephone.
