That's probably the best use for annotations. It can be annoying when you don't discover an error in a video until well after it's been uploaded. Annotations provided a nice way to correct factual errors without having to redo the video and re-upload. It would be pretty useful if they provided a way to bake text only annotations like this into the video after the fact for things like corrections.

Seeing as Straight Talk and similar providers merely piggyback on AT&T's towers if AT&T no longer accept 2G connections that would also cut off carriers like Straight Talk. Interestingly T-Mobile has offered 2G AT&T customers a home until 2020. https://newsroom.t-mobile.com/...
