Non 4G LTE handsets will no longer be activated at Verizon

Do you remember your first 3G smartphone? For yours truly, it was the BlackBerry Storm, which was released half-baked from Verizon on November 21st, 2008. Let’s say that after all these years, you want to re-activate your old Storm or BlackBerry Storm 2 (the latter was a decent phone) on the Verizon network. That will no longer be possible. A statement released today by Big Red confirms that the nation’s largest carrier is no longer activating devices that do not support 4G LTE connectivity.

Verizon’s decision to stop activating 3G phones is a precursor to its plan to shut down its 3G CDMA pipeline by the end of next year. At one point, there was talk of Verizon requiring 4G LTE handsets to support VoLTE and HD calls in order to be activated. Today’s statement would suggest that the wireless provider continues to activate all 4G LTE capable phones.
