2G Still Exists, Who Knew

AT&T recently revealed that they are planning to shut down their 2G wireless network by 2017. The majority of carriers including AT&T have been pushing their customers to make the switch to a 3G or 4G phone. AT&T stated that they did not expect any problems having customers transition to 3G or 4G, but with the switch comes the requirement of using a smartphone.

For some this may not be a problem, they will finally be able to experience the glory that comes with owning a smartphone. But for others, using a smartphone presents a problem. I know my grandmom still uses an old flip phone and could care less to about buying a smartphone. She said to learn how to use a smartphone, she needs to attend a special university. Is there no work around for this group of people? Only time will tell.
