The Peek messaging device is something that users out there picked up since the thing launched to allow them to message other users without having to pay for a monthly data plan to do it. The original Peek devices were the Pronto and the Classic with the latest being the Peek 9.
According to Peek last week on Thursday, one of the providers it used for connectivity with the older devices closed for good. That means that all of the older Peek devices out there stopped working leaving some unhappy users.
Peek has announced that there is no fix for the situation other than for the users of the older devices to upgrade to a new Peek 9. The good news is that Peek is offering that upgrade to the new hardware free to owners of older devices. Owners of older devices should have received an email about the upgrade, if not owners of older devices can email at email@example.com.
