I think it will be a long wait. AT&T just shutdown their 1G (AMPS) network last year.

That was because the U.S. Government mandated that any AMPS network in operation had to be maintained until 2007. You had many companies such as General Motors (OnStar) and security services lobbying to have the AMPS network sunset date extended.

Once the date had passed, I think it was February or March, I don't remember exactly, the carriers could choose to maintain their AMPS network but were not required to.
