A Bend financial advisor says the new cell phone company that's doing  business soon in Redmond is very different than the company it's replacing.  Oregon based Consumer Cellular is opening a call center in the same into the spot that T-Mobile is soon vacating.  Tyler Simones with Northwest Quadrant Wealth Management says the company targets older clients who want a basic cell phone, with a low monthly fee,  minus the big contract.  “Most seniors think of the cell phone as an option for emergencies and the only time they turn it on is when they want to use it; unlike the rest of us who's phones are on all the time, and it’s our only phone.  And the senior market still has a home phone, and they just use it when they travel or for emergencies.  The rest of the time its off, so this is a good option for them at just $10 a month.  They have really big buttons so they are really user friendly.  Most of those people in that market don't care about Smart Phones and other things we use it for."  Simones also says compared to a big national company like T-Mobile, an Oregon company would probably be less likely to close an Oregon call center.
