According to Marco Moock snipped-for-privacy@posteo.de:


That's right. It's not a big deal for handsets which people frequently replace anyway, but it is a significant issue for burglar alarms and other IoT devices which are not easy to upgrade and in many cases, the owner has no idea they depend on 3G and will stop working.

If you're planning to visit the US, be sure your phone works on US LTE bands.
