I never ever do those kind of offers. My mobile phone is far to personal to be having advertisers call me or text me.

Others have also informed me that they've had to contact their track phone service provider and ask them for assitance. Luckily, those text messages they were receiving from that website was located and deleted from their track phone number. The text messages were charging $10.00 per text message from their track phone. Yikes  :- :-X :P ??? :( :dontknow: :sad1: :crybaby2: Now thats creepy, $10.oo per text message  :bs:

Some offers require a cell phone number but others do not. I never give out my cell phone number to anyone. I have a home land line and only use my cell phone for back up and emergency. I have a limited plan and a limited text message plan.

It could be different for those persons who have unlimited plans. They might not have to worry about a lot of text messages and calls. They do not have to worry about going over their limits. I do. :wave:

I did once, and that offer kept on spamming my phone and i had to call the phone company to block the number!! Don't do it unless it's for necessary reasons, such as online shopping and stuff.

A lot of surveys require you to use your cell phone.

One way you can manage the cell phone problem is to get a cheap pay as you go phone. That way you are less likely to end up with a monthly charge you don't want. Sometimes you can get away with putting 000-000-0000, in the phone spot. Other times it is best to just avoid those types of offers. Now if it is a survey company I have never had a problem with those kind of sites, and sometimes they need to contact you for call in surveys or focus groups. It is a hard decision and sometimes scary idea to give out your number for no good reason.   :dontknow:

I'm always hesitant to give out my phone number be it landline or cell phone. Being flooded with bogus phone calls is a hell of alot worse than being flooded with emails. I can just use a "junk" email account for those, but I can't keep changing my phone number and making it hard for my family/friends to contact us. >:(

I too am not comfortable giving my cell number, so I tend to skip those offers and I still manage to do pretty well with other offers and surveys, Fusion cash is Awesome! :notworthy:

I am not comfortable giving out my cell phone number to anyone, plus I don't have text messages on my cell.  I just tried an offer that required a cell phone number be given in order to complete offer.  Is that the norm here?
I don't like giving my cell number either. Usually just quit when it comes up. I hope there aren't that many offers like that.
