What if all mobile phone companies suddenly shut down?

That would mean there was a major war happening, or a world wide planetary disaster going on to shut ALL mobile phone companies and I assume you mean carriers, manufacturers and retailers of all things mobile phone related.
It would mean millions of people out of work and or dead when this happened. It would also mean Joe and Jane Everyone, would have many things more important on their minds, that sending that Facebook status update, or waiting for the next spam calls of the day.

Interesting question. For many people, not much. A large portion of the data use of cell phones is over wifi which would not be affected by mobile phone companies shutting down. Also, most phones have the ability to makes calls over wifi.
Text messaging will be affect for many users, but some users of certain apps like Whatsapp can use wifi so there would be no affect.
But those users who do rely on the mobile network for phone calls and text and other data usage would be out of luck and may have to pay attention to the road while they are driving.
