I've had the basic verizon plan for 3 years but my 10 year old LG flip phone is finally wearing out.  I don't use data, just talk(it's a phone!)  I can buy a replacement on Amazon if I'm operating in 3G.  I'm fairly sure that's the case, but I can't find anything on this website that confirms it.   Help!

You're not going to be able to activate a 3G phone, that's restricted since 3G is being retired soon.

What @Tigerstep  wrote is true.  You can not activate a 3g phone again.

What is true needs to be shared when it comes to a 3G device.

Let me help with your concern about our 3G network. What is the make and model of your device? Do you need looking for a replacement deceive? We have announced the CDMA Network Retirement and here's a link that goes over the details https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/knowledge-base-218813/

I've got a LG Accolade that is failing and  I planned to replace with a Samsung Convoy 3 that I own.  Please let me know if the Convoy operates in 4G. The other line has a LG Revere that still works great and I wanted to get a newer basic phone as a gift, but the user HATES smart phones.  We want to keep our current plan.

Joel, Thanks for the link.  Why do your basic phones get such poor reviews?

The basic flip phones Verizon offers are getting mediocre reviews. Do smartphones require a data plan or can I keep what I have?
