O+ USA May Have Called It Quits


No updates since July of this year

O+ USA, one of the most prolific local brands in the Philippines may have just closed up shop. We’ve been hearing rumors from industry sources that the company was in rough waters earlier this year, and from the looks of things they may have already called it quits.

Their Facebook page has been inactive since July, with no new posts promoting any new products since March. The only new post since then has been an announcement of where people can contact them, via email, for further service and support. None of their published contact numbers are reachable. The email address is also not reachable, with the email we sent bouncing back via Mailer Daemon.

Even more telling is the transfer of Vic Sotto, one of their longtime endorsers to rival brand Cherry Mobile. That, and the sudden disappearance and non-communication of the brand (as well as the throngs of angry users flooding their Facebook page) may mean that they may have closed up shop for good.

  1. Good riddance! their products are LOW QUALITY with a HIGH PRICE, Cherry Mobile may also have low quality phones but at least the price is fair!

  2. Well, the brand is 0, what do you expect? Seriously, this will not be the last one to raise the white flag.
    Are there still people who buy Cherry, myphone, Starmobile? myphone already surrendered the smartphone segment, concentrating on the cheaper feature phones. Cherry and starmobile are still offering smartphones occasionally now. Gone were the days these two were releasing cheap, substandard smartphones left and right. There’s still at the end of the tunnel but its flickering for these two. The future is bleak, 0+ says it all.

  3. What baffles me is they seem to have sprung up like a mushroom, and while they claim to be an “American” brand, no word about its supposed US origins could be found.
