Just like with the Flex Plan, it's your responsibility to maintain a
balance of 500 credits. You must also acquire a minimum of 2500 credits
over the course of each 30 day period. Failing these will cause a
temporary suspension of your service, this ensures our free service is
ultimate-lavendar-houndstooth-gladiator-54876: I'd rather pay Tello $6 a month or whatever than this.
jamielih: I wonder what the minimum Android versions are supported for the required interactions.
Lucky for us Howard forums is able to discuss this carrier & their threads contain helpful info. So thanks to Classical_Minds for providing the links. Guess we'll just have to get info there instead of on the R+ forum.
So @jamielih They provided the answer to your question but keep in mind that post is from Oct 2015 so that info could be outdated : http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php/1872998-CellNuvo-free-service?p=16102681#post16102681
And they only allow Android (2.3 and above) phones and iPhones. So no flip/feature phones.
akaLTD: Some might prefer or simply can't afford to pay anything per month.
ultimate-lavendar-houndstooth-gladiator-54876: You only half quoted me. What I meant was to separate the surveys and the service. So pick someone like Tello and pay $6 a month and then go to a survey place like swagbucks or instagc, earnhoney etc and make yourself $6 a month doing surveys to cover your cell phone bill. That way if you can't get enough surveys or go on vacation you won't lose your line or get suspended!
akaLTD: If someone can "earn" enough credits simply using cellNUVO by itself why go to all the trouble to sign up with another site or multiple sites to earn the same thing. Though again it would depend on the user & their needs. That's all I'm saying.
ultimate-lavendar-houndstooth-gladiator-54876: I think to me the main issue with cellnuvo is that you are at their mercy in terms of what surveys etc are available as well as the threat of suspended service if you do not earn enough each month. If you can take that away the idea of getting free service by earning it
via surveys etc is a viable alternative for those needing free service
if ringplus is no longer available. I'd rather do a bit of work this
way than rely on freedompop.
ultimate-lavendar-houndstooth-gladiator-54876: I get your point about not qualifying for surveys and don't do many surveys these days myself. Using bing for searching can bring in a few dollars a month. I'm signed up for crossmediapanel (google) which brings in $3 a week for letting them see what I browse (set up on secondary devices only!). I like google rewards too to get a movie rental or an app now and then. Point is there are a lot of options out there to earn enough to pay for cell service. Some even pay you to play games if you are into that kind of thing.
