Question Verizon killing off 3G...how much longer before Sprint does?

Verizon is killing off 3G - Dec. 4, 2014

Yeah, it's got a few years with Verizon...but think about it for a minute.

The Uconnect system runs off of the Sprint 3G network (IIRC...correct me if this is wrong)....one has to wonder how/when Sprint follows suit and starts killing off 3G to make room for better technologies like 5G (Femtocell) or whatever else is over the horizon.

Makes me wonder what our choices/options will be for current model Uconnect systems to continue to function and gets updates.

Has anyone explored hacking the uconnect systems to run off of a different carrier or use a different modem? I think it would be fun to start tinkering....
