    USC CDMA sunset?

    I only see CDMA sunset dates for the 4 major carriers. When is the end date for non-VoLTE activations and use on USC?

    CDMA-only devices generally cannot be activated on new lines of service anymore, the exception being a select few models. There’s no set date for a CDMA shutdown, but there is a big push to get customers on VoLTE devices.

    That's the way it's been with the carriers and MVNOs. Just an urge to upgrade the phones without a set date. They likely don't want to commit, as the dates might change. Verizon backed off a whole year. Just about everything you see is from 3rd party sources. Sometimes you can get it from a CSR or dealer.

    Makes perfect sense. See if I was an MVNO I’d just set a hard date saying my customers will need to have a VoLTE capable phone by XYZ date to continue service, without mentioning a CDMA sunset date. This way if my parent company changes their own sunset dates my customers would be prepared.
