Red Pocket Mobile is preparing for the 3G shutdown.
The 3G GSMA network shuts down on February 22, 2022.
Please take action to avoid service interruption. 3G connectivity will be discontinued, however, most 4G LTE or 5G compatible phones will still work with our GSMA network SIM cards. The best way to confirm that your device will continue to work after the shutdown date is to be sure your phone is VoLTE capable. Click here to see if your device will continue to operate.
What can I do if my phone is 3G-only and will be affected?
Red Pocket Mobile can help you upgrade to a 4G or 5G device, on any budget, with financing options available. Please visit redpocket.com/shop to take a look at our available phones.
When you purchase a phone, you'll receive a new network SIM card. Contact us if you need help transferring over your account information.
You may need to upgrade your SIM card as well
If your SIM card was purchased years ago, you may be using an older SIM card that is not compatible with VoLTE phones. VoLTE is an important requirement for devices that will remain functional after the 3G shutdown.
All affected Red Pocket Mobile customers were recently sent brand new, VoLTE-compatible SIM cards in the mail. Please check your mailbox for your new SIM card. SIMs were mailed to the address on record.
Once you have your SIM card in hand, update your account with the new SIM card number and then complete APN network setup steps. This will allow an over-the-air (OTA) update, connecting your phone service to the new SIM card. Click here to learn about swapping your SIM card.
If you did not receive a SIM card in the mail, and you are affected, we can get you a replacement. Contact Red Pocket Mobile's customer support team for assistance, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit redpocket.com/contact-us.
