Simplexity files Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Delaware – It’s official

There’s been a lot of chatter on the web among the mobile community and bloggers that Wirefly and it’s parent Simplexity were filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.  It looks like they’ve officially filed for Chapter 11 in the Court of Delaware. Here’s  a link to the Delaware bankruptcy court web page: http://www.deb.uscourts.gov/Chapter11/Chap11.aspx

They apparently filed on March 16, 2014.  

We’ll be following this and update you as we get more information.  We would like to know what caused the bankruptcy filing. Was it purely economics?  Or, did one of their remaining 3 major carriers (Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) pull the plug on the authorized dealer program?  

Whatever the case may be, it sure was unusual to have a site that powered the likes of RadioShack.com, TigerDirect, and NewEgg suddenly shut down without any warning.
