I'm with you. I have both a home land line and a smart phone. I do not mind giving my land line number but I will not give out my cell phone number. The reason is that I am on a senior plan. I have both limited minutes and text messages. I can not afford to go over. Thus, very few persons have my cell phone number and I do not sign up for offers that require I give it out.

How much do you save with a plan like that? I have unlimited calls and texts for $19 a month.

What company offers unlimited for that low?

I'm wondering the same thing. I am looking for a good cell phone company right now. I see a lot of them that have unlimited talk, text and data for like $45 a month, straighttalk being one of them but I hear that they don't work very good where I live since I live in a rural area. I wonder if your plan would work where I live or if it is a cell phone company that anybody from any state can get.

I'm not sure what offers you're referring to, but can you use a Google Voice number? You can get one for free and they work great as disposable (or even permanent) numbers so you don't have to worry about spammers and telemarketers calling you all the time.

My biggest pet peeve with offers is when they get removed. :(

Sign up for a k7.net account and get a free online voicemail number. Not unless it's an offer where they have to text you some code to your phone you should be able to use your new voicemail number on just about any offer. I actually recommend using it on all offer, even for your home phone, because then you won't get any spam calls.

having a cell phone is not what they want. they want a smart phone so its misleading saying cell phone folks can do the 6cent tasks.

I agree. I don't like giving my cell number out.

I understand you and agree.  Adding on to your pet peeve, I have a problem when people or companies in general assume that you as a consumer own the latest and greatest gadgets.  That just is not the case with everyone, especially me.

I did not know that there were offers that require a phone number and a cell phone number. I am familiar with the offers that require a mobile device such as a smart phone or a tablet.

Why don't you use your home phone to do these offers?

Have anyone experience that when you click on some of the videos offers it says no offers available about five of them, that's quite frustrating. :heart:
