Dear ContactBox users,
Today we’re announcing that we will be shutting down ContactBox on September 1st, 2019.
7 years ago we set out to create a new and more convenient way for people to manage and share contact lists on their smartphones. We are proud of the community that rallied around our apps and are inspired by the incredible sharing and discovery that came from it. Sadly, we have failed to make ContactBox a viable service and are forced to discontinue its operation.
We want to make this transition as smooth as possible for everyone who uses ContactBox. Here is
what is going to happen on September 1st, 2019:
The ContactBox app will no longer be available for download from the Apple Appstore or from Google Play
The ContactBox server will be shut down which means that you will no longer be able to create lists, share lists, update existing lists or update contacts
Your app will continue to function in offline mode which means that any information you had in it prior to the termination date will continue to be accessible after the shutdown date
We will stop all maintenance activities of the app including making sure that it works on future version of your phone’s operating system. This means that if and when you do upgrade the operating system of your mobile phone certain capabilities of the app may stop functioning or the app may stop functioning altogether.
We will not be offering existing users any updates to the app
All customer services including tech support will be discontinued
Starting from May 1st 2019 and until September 30th 2019 you will be able to get a copy of your lists as a CSV file (which you can open using most spreadsheet applications including Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets) by submitting a request at the List Download page on our website. On October 1st, 2019 all the data on our servers will be deleted. Please make sure to download your lists before!
Until the shutdown date operation of the ContactBox service will continue normally.
If you have additional questions or need further help, please feel free to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope you have enjoyed using our apps and thank you for your support,
The ContactBox team
