What is 3G and Why Choose CallSafe Go? by Admin What is 3G and Why Choose CallSafe Go?CallSafe’s mobile help-button is not only light-weight and waterproof with a month-long battery-life, but it’s 3G. Fantastic! But, why is this so great, and what does ‘”3G “actually mean? The best way to look at this is by comparison. Traditional pendants require landlines and some early mobile pendants run on 2G. CallSafe believes that there is no need for peace of mind to be tethered by a land line or outdated like 2G.Cellular networks break up their innovations in communication into cellular generations (the ‘G’ in 2G, 3G and 4G). Phone companies have slowly been phasing out 2G to make way for the faster 3G. This means that they’ve been cutting back the coverage area for devices – cell phones, emergency pendants, etc.— that run on 2G. As of January 1, 2017, cellular-network companies are flipping the switch permanently; 2G will not work at all. Don’t worry about your cel lphone; most phones are equipped to run on 3G and 4G-LTE, but some alarm and security devices were built solely for 2G. Don’t get caught in the dark after the “2G sunset”. Get a 3G device or update your other mobile security devices. For more information about CallSafe, visit www.callsafe.net.
