As a result you'll experience slower network speeds until you upgrade to a new 4G phone" this was a letter i received today, My question is will my phone still work? called and customer service couldn't tell me, lol Told me to upgrade to a new phone...I told him my old phone works just fine, No thanks!!

CDMA service will be done at the end of march. Meaning any cell phone that doesn't use a sim card will be done and won't work at the end of March. So I recommend you upgrade your phone to a phone that uses a sim card. Otherwise, your phone will be out of service effective April 1st.

Evdo will be shut down meaning your DATA may not work but your phone will continue to function as a phone.

CDMA shutdown isn't expected in full until 2015

1x will still be available after March. With evdo gone, just means your data will be slower after March 31st
