I'm replying on-list since it seems like a lot of people are in the same boat.
Here's a summary of what happened to us. Please feel free to jump in if you had a different experience, or have more information.
Google sent us a notice in December that as of June 8 they would be discontinuing the Google for ISPs program and that we had to find a different e-mail provider. Unfortunately, they only sent this notice to the account that initially created the service, which was un-monitored. I have heard the same thing from others. They did not include a notice about the discontinuation in their monthly billing, only in e-mail and only to the account that initiated the google service.
We actually found out about it some time in February. I spoke with the Google contact listed in the e-mail and was told that they were indeed cancelling the service, but wasn't given a reason. We also asked if it was possible to move to a different Google service, Google Apps for Business for example, but was told that it would be against their terms or service and would result in a cancellation of the service.
After a lot of research in Google's forums, it looked like a lot of other people were in the same boat we were. We ended up talking with another e-mail provider and migrating all of our mail. Several weeks ago we asked Google for an extension because the migration was taking longer than expected. We were given until the 16th of June and told that no further extensions would be given. I have spoken to one person who was given until the end of June.
Here is the original notice we received from google. I hope this helps others in the same boat

Need some help.. Does anyone have an email contact at Google that they are willing to pass along?
All of our [ mowisp.net ]( http://mowisp.net ) Apps for ISP accounts were disabled last night at about 8-9PM without notice and we are now getting swamped with calls. Possibly several hundred users affected.
