So I have read that verizon is going to GSM on January 1, 2021. Please tell me this is true. Verizon is the only carrier that works in Thomaston, GA. Would love to be able to get the phone I want, not the very few choices we currently have.
We would love to have you join our Verizon family. We have a number of devices and areas that currently support GSM. This is always subject to change in the future as well. New service can be set up by calling 800-225-5499 or by using the link below.
We will be sure to figure out the best option for your needs and can check the coverage in your area as well for you.
The only thing that is happening is the shut down of 3G. GSM and CDMA are dated standards since LTE is what is used for data.
You're still going to have to be mindful of what radio bands an unlocked phone supports if it's one Verizon doesn't carry.
Yes, we did read your post and I noticed we replied twice. Did you try using the information we provided on how to contact us to ask about getting new service? Please contact us by calling 800-225-5499 or by using the link below.
