Old Mobile Shut Down?

6 posts in this topic

Posted

The girlfriend came back from work last night with an interesting story.

The rumour is that the phone networks will soon be "shutting down" services to mobiles Older than 5 years? Im sure that this is a load of rubbish, sure its breaking some form of trade laws, so im not worried in the slightest and neither should your grandma!

Has anyone else heard this though? That soon you wont be able to use any mobile older than 5 years?!

Sounds extremely unlikely to me. I'm sure eventually when 3G is established the networks will want to stop supporting 2g and 2.5g devices but that's a long way off.

There was something in the news recently about O2 (I think) stopping services for the very old PAYG handsets.

I think this is only true of PAYG phones, no matter how old, if you don't top up in six months the number expires, possibly so the phone companies can re-use the number?

Yes that would make sense completely. Other wise they'd end up with now more numbers to give out meaning no more sims and stuff. cheers mandt
