Amp'd Mobile Going Down

Amp'd Mobile is "potentially" shutting down as soon as the 24th, according to a terse FAQ on the company's website. Although no explanation has been provided for the sudden deactivation, the company hints at an impending chapter 11 bankruptcy and supports claims through its policy for the shutdown: although discovered in just the past day, customer service will be discontinued by the end of Monday, the company says. The shutdown is also expected to be permanent, and customers have already been encouraged to port their phone numbers to other CDMA-based providers such as Sprint and Verizon.

The provider says it will waive any early cancellation fees for customers regardless of how long they have been in place with a contract, though switching with a prepaid plan will require switching to a prepaid service. Streaming services will go offline immediately, though any content save to storage cards and PCs will continue to work, Amp'd says. Talks are reportedly underway to sell the company to one of several possible carriers, but whether Amp'd will return under one of these deals is unknown.
