T-Mobile US plans to rapidly fast track plans to shut down its 2G and 3G voice networks, according to AndroidPolice.com citing an internal document from T-Mobile. Customers with phones supporting these technologies may be forced to upgrade handsets or leave the network in a matter months as the operator said it will require all devices connecting to its nationwide 4G and 5G networks to be VoLTE compatible as of January 2021. AT&T started warning customers that phones without 4G voice calling would no longer work starting in 2022.
