RICHMOND, Va. -- The store is bare, nothing on the shelves.

Roberta Richardson said she just bought two new phones, for hundreds of dollars, from the wireless company nTelos. She was shocked to find that several locations are now closed around Richmond.

nTelos sold its local wireless licenses to T-Mobile, for $56 million, but hasn't told all of its customers.

If you are an nTeloss customer, the company said there will be a transition phase happening over the next 12-months, and service will continue through November 2015.

They have not explained where customers can go for service issues with their current hardware.
