As mobile carriers shut down their 3G networks, staff members should double check that 3G devices are not being used by their team.
AT&T is discontinuing its 3G network this month, and Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, etc. will follow throughout the year.
CommonSpirit Health has already identified and addressed 3G devices that CommonSpirit Health supported, but the Mobile Device Management Team may not be aware of all the facility devices that are currently in use. In addition, some staff members and patients may not be aware of the change.
