In the comments section on Electrek, many people are reportedly working around the issue by tethering the car to their phones.

Here I am, stuck with a Nissan Leaf whose only connection to the outside world is a 2G network that is in the process of being decommissioned. I'll be stuck with no way to contact my car when it's shut off completely in December 2016. Nissan will supposedly have a 3G upgrade available by then (just in time for it too to become obsolete), but we'll have to pay some as-yet undisclosed amount and visit a dealership to have that upgrade performed.

I'm kind of amazed that Tesla even provides the ability to tether the car. I have plenty of old phones sitting around the house. If I could simply tether my Nissan to one of them, my problems would be solved.

I think all Tesla's come with WiFi, so "tethering" is simple idea and great redundancy if your mobile phone plan allows it. If not then you'll need to find a hot spot.
