These are the devices that will stop working on T-Mobile’s network next year


Over the course of time as technology progresses, older pieces of tech start to drop out and stop getting the support it needs. This is true across pretty much all pieces of tech, including smartphones, and it seems that T-Mobile has revealed that come January 2021, these are the handsets that will no longer be usable on its network.

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (AT&T model)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (Verizon model)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
  • HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle
  • HTC Desire 650
  • Google Nexus 9
  • Huawei Mate 8
  • Huawei P9
  • Mikrotikls SIA_R11e-LTE6
  • Netgear Arlo Security Camera System
  • OnePlus 1
  • Quanta Dragon IR7
  • Samsung Galaxy S5 Duos
  • Sony Xperia Z3 Compact
  • Sony Xperia Z3
  • Sony Xperia Z3 Orion
  • Sony D6616 Xperia Z3 Orion
  • Soyea M02
  • ZTE ZMax

These devices are based on a list that was sent to Android Police (which they have since verified). They do note that it is possible that the list of devices could be longer, so maybe there are some phones not on this list that could be affected. That being said, to be fair most of the handsets on the list are kind of old and we’re not sure how many of them are still in use, meaning that the impact will be minimal.

T-Mobile has since confirmed that it is not because of VoLTE requirements or a shutdown of legacy networks, but stopped short of providing additional details. Either way, it’s something that users should take note of, especially if you happen to be using any of the devices that is listed above.
