Straight Talk Extends CDMA Support Deadline for Some Customers

Straight Talk Wireless has sent out an email to its customers regarding its end of CDMA support.

The email was obtained by NWIDA, which shared that the Tracfone-owned MVNO has extended end of CDMA support to summer 2020.

Unfortunately, this good news is only for customers under Verizon's network. With the new extension, customers have more time to purchase a new phone. This way, affected customers will not have to incur loss of service.

This is the email shared by NWIDA:


You May Have Heard…

Our carrier partner is making network changes in order to improve your overall service. These changes will prevent your current phone from working. In order to avoid a loss of service, you will need to upgrade your phone.

This Is Great News!

We negotiated with our network partner to extend the deadline until the Summer of 2020. You now have more time to purchase a phone compatible with the improved network.

Take Advantage of Early Deals

Before the network changes take place, take advantage of the early deals to consider your upgrade options for a smoother transition.

  1. Does this have anything to do with Verizon phasing out 3G support? Or whatever they were doing in 2020?

  2. straight talk support almost non-existant. They say get new base at Walmart - but Walmart only sells ZTE cdma device. What device number are we supposed to change to?

  3. So my Verizon phone won't work no more?????

    1. If it is 3g only it won't work anymore

  4. What is the date this summer you have to upgrade to the new network change?

  5. Is it just the 3G straight talk phones on the CDMA frequency that will no longer work? Or will the 4G phones too??
