Consumer Cellular to hire some of T-Mobile's laid off workers, sub-lease its old call-center5
contains some of the worst unemployment in the state. Consumer Cellular has call centers in Phoenix and one at corporate headquarters in Portland. T-Mobile laid off the workers as part of a corporate-wide shuttering of 7 call centers (including the one in Redmond) and 3,300 workers were given pink slips. The carrier has since laid off a further 900 workers.
Consumer Cellular offers handsets ranging from the $35 Motorola WX345 to the Motorola Bravo for $175. Plans run as low as $10 a month and there are no contracts to sign.
