“We are thrilled to expand our device portfolio and reach more people ―
specifically Sears customers ― with our affordable, no-contract phones and
wireless plans,” said Consumer Cellular CEO John Marick. “The Envoy and Vision
are great examples of the broad range of devices we offer and our expansion
into Sears Hometown Stores not only provides current customers the added
convenience of finding Consumer Cellular products close to home, it also helps
us reach an entirely new audience.”

Designed exclusively for Consumer Cellular, the Envoy offers text messaging,
email, Internet and an MP3 music player in a simple-to-use flip phone. The

and soft-touch coating allows for simple handling and stowing. The Envoy
