2G network shutdown in Singapore

The 3 telcos in Singapore will be shutting down the 2G network starting from today. No, this is not an April Fool’s joke. It’s real.

This mean that beginning today your old 2G phones cannot be used anymore. Phones like your Nokia 3310, Ericsson T10, Motorola StarTAC etc.

But most people won’t be affected. However, there might be some senior citizens who are still holding on to old 2G phones and didn’t know about this 2G network shutdown. So if you know anyone, do help them switch to a 3G or 4G phone.

Oh ya, and those going for reservist can no longer use their good old Nokia or Ericsson phone now. Goodbye my Nokia 8250. (Not that I still need to go back reservist anymore)
