This just in from MobileStar:
Valued MobileStar Customer,
You may have heard news about MobileStar suspending some aspects of its operations in mid-October. We want to assure you that the MobileStar network remained operational during this brief period and that MobileStar has returned to business as usual with the exception of new customer service operating hours.
You may contact customer service by calling (800) 981-8563 Monday through Friday, 7 AM to 7 PM Central Time or via email at email@example.com.
Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience you may have experienced over the past few weeks. We do expect to return to a 24-hour, 7-day operating schedule and continue to add new MobileStar service locations in the near future. We will keep you informed of our progress.
We are committed to providing you with the largest wireless broadband network and best service available anywhere. Thank you for your continued business.
As far as I can tell, I have continued to be billed during this period, too.
