When will the SHA1 change to SHA2 encryption become a problem for the Revere 3?

ZDnet said:  As sites move to SHA2 encryption, millions face HTTPS lock-out | ZDNet

"For most people, there's nothing to worry about. The majority are already using the latest Chrome or Firefox browser, the latest operating system, or the newest smartphone with the latest software, which are compatible with the old SHA1-hashed websites and the newer SHA2-hashed websites.

But many, particularly those in developing nations, who are running older software, devices, and even "dumbphones," the candy-bar cellphones that have basic mobile internet, will face a brick wall, because their devices aren't up-to-date enough to even know what SHA2 is."

What does this mean for Verizon and the Revere 3?
