T-Mobile USA today indicated that though it expects to layoff 900 employees during its planned restructuring, the company will hire approximately 550 new employees in other areas of the business. The bulk of the new hires will be added to a facility in the Puget Sound area, and T-Mobile says it is going to fill these positions as rapidly as it can. T-Mobile is encouraging employees facing a job loss to apply for any openings within the company that suit their qualifications. T-Mobile also clarified that the layoffs expected this week do not involve technicians in engineering, customer service representatives in its 17 call centers, or front-line retail employees in corporate-owned T-Mobile stores. T-Mobile expects the net number of jobs eliminated through this process to be about 350, which is in addition to approximately 1,000 jobs already slated for elimination.

It could be that they're cutting 900 well paying jobs and hiring 550 minimum wage positions. There's also the ...

Smoke and Mirrors

Most likely 500 much lesser paying jobs. So, the people who will be loosing their jobs, most likely will not be able to live off the income of the current jobs. If you read in between the lines, no front line employees or techs are loosing their jobs. Which leads me to believe that mid to upper management will be ass out.

This is much like the smoke and mirror act of their recent commercial, as cool as it is, I give them an A+ for creativity.
The iPhone 4GS running much faster on their 4G network than it runs on AT&T's network. Truth is, the iPhone 4GS doesn't even have LTE and doesn't run on At&t's LTE but, their advanced 3G UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA850/900/1900/2100 MHz network.

Or, is that another play on words, too. Are they talking about ...
