Amp’d Mobile Closing Down July 24

Verizon-serviced mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) Amp’d Mobile will be potentially suspending U.S. operations on July 24.

A small Q&A link on the Amp’d Mobile homepage details anticipated questions from customers regarding the state of the business. According to the website, customer service to help with issues such as ports or credits will not be available after July 23.

Users of the Amp’d Mobile service report that they have received a text message from the carrier informing them that the service may be unavailable as of midnight on Tuesday, July 24.

Last week, Amp’d Mobile asked the courts for permission to sell its assets at auction and to various buyers. Its assets include its existing handset inventory, accessories and even office equipment.

Infrastructure operator Verizon said that it costs $370,000 per day to maintain Amp’d Mobile’s service. According to RCR News, Amp’d expects to only have about $9,000 in cash by Monday.
