I doubt that'll happen. Only the REQUIREMENT to maintain analog is going away. If OnStar is paying good money to certain cell carriers to provide analog, I'm pretty sure they'll continue providing it until OnStar migrates everyone to digital. Having said that, I don't know what the migration plans are.
