    How to Tell if Your Verizon Wireless Phone Needs Replacement w/ YE 2019 CDMA Shutdown

    Use this website https://www.phonescoop.com/phones/finder.php to check nearly all cell phones, including older discontinued ones. In my experience, works for 98%+ phones out there, which only one or two phones over the years where the phone model was not found in the website database. On this web page/URL:

    - First click the Show All Options link near the top.
    - Then select Verizon Wireless as Carrier and select option of Required.
    - If known, your phone's Manufacturer i.e. Apple/iPhone, LG, Samsung, etc. and select option of Required.
    - and toward the bottom of the web page, find HD Voice and select option of Required.
    - You may need to select additional filters, depending on your phone's manufacturer and type, to limit the search results to 20 or less which is the maximum that can be displayed.

    * No Action needed, EXCEPT checking your Phone settings which more info at https://www.verizonwireless.com/supp...e-base-218813/ seeing Related Topics section HD Voice - If your phone IS listed, then it does NOT need to be replaced before year end.

    * Action needed - If your phone model is NOT listed, then it WILL need to be replaced by 12/31/2019 (note below).

    If you are unsure who your phone manufacturer is and what model it is, check for labels around and in the phone including underneath the battery cover if it can be opened, or any user manual or documentation on paper or online, or records from your purchase or getting the phone. If you still need help or want to double confirm before purchasing a new or replacement VZW 4G LTE phone with HD Voice, post here at Hofo, check with a good techy friend, visit your local Verizon Wireless store, call or chat online with Verizon Wireless if you are a customer, or check with whichever store or place including online you purchased or received your phone from.

    In addition to above, especially if you have no clue what the manufacturer and model of your phone is, another way to check if your older phone needs replacement is enter its IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity)number at https://www.imei.info . According to this article https://www.idahostatesman.com/news/...229968794.html where more info, 'you may find it under the phone’s “About” tab. Or you can press *#06# on your phone’s keypad to bring up the IMEI'. Or by opening the phone's battery/SD/SIM card compartment on the back of some phones, or if still have the original box which the phone came in when purchased, it is often on a label there.

    That is a nice tool however it doesn't appear to be completely accurate. When I use the instructions you provided it doesn't show the Moto X4, however when I go Phonescoop's page for the X4 it shows that it does have HD Voice which I had already know but wanted to test it.
