BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) -- T-Mobile USA Inc. is cutting 1,900 jobs nationwide as it consolidates its call centers.

The cellphone service provider said Thursday that it is making the moves to cut costs and remain competitive.

T-Mobile will cut the number of call centers from 24 to 17 by the end of June. The job cuts represent about half the number of people employed at the call centers. Affected employees will have a chance to transfer to remaining centers.

The company also said it will restructure other parts of its business during the second quarter. That includes plans it announced previously to modernize its network, add new technology and hire more sales staff.

T-Mobile is based in Bellevue, Wash., and is the smallest of the four nationwide carriers.

    more like 3300 people will loose jobs. Even though the president says the economy is getting better. That is because everyones unemployment is running out. lets see the president support his family by working at McDonalds...

    As far as I've heard, because my husband works in the Springs call center, the call center here in the Springs is staying open. It will be a total loss of more than 3,300 jobs nationwide but T-Mobile is offering those employees first shot at the approximate 1,400 positions open in other positions within the company. The part that makes it even worse is that all the cuts are domestically--all the call centers overseas aren't being touched, which in our opinion, is complete BS. Why should the overseas centers get to keep their jobs but Americans, who made the company what it is, get shafted?

    No I have friends there they said their call center will stay. I'm glad I got out of that company when I did! I hear it's all drama now and a horrible place to work

    I know a lot of people that work at the one up north by Chapel Hills. Any word if their jobs are in limbo?
