No cell phone
« on: February 25, 2020, 12:00:13 pm »
I have three sites that I do surveys on.  A couple of months ago Branded Surveys decided that you need a cell phone for verification purposes  in order to do surveys (I do not have a cell phone nor do I have access to one) .  I have been doing the daily poll  and watching videos to reach the cash out point and then I was going to just give it up.  Today I reached the cash out point (I usually cash out for a amazon card) but they won't let me cash out because no cell phone. UGH   >:(

You can try using a google voice number, they're free -- it accepts text messaging.  If that is what is needed to get verified.

Maybe they can use a regular phone number or verify your info with security questions like I have seen on other sites. It wouldn't hurt to just explain to them your situation and maybe they can help you out. Good Luck!

You can either borrow a cell phone from a friend or relative or use google voice for this.

I had not noticed any changes that required a cell phone.

You cannot just borrow a cell phone from a friend. I would not let a friend use my cell phone number for a site like this not knowing what kind of spam I may or may not receive. The google voice I think you still have to connect it to your cell phone because does it not send the text to your cell? I was looking for something like that a while back and that was what someone else was saying.

Don't you know anyone with a cellphone?


I know tons of people with cell phones. But most would now allow someone else to get a text on their phone. I know I wouldn't.

I would never ask to use anyones cell phone for something like this and I do not want google voice.  Branded Surveys told me the only way to do the verification is through a cell phone not through a land line.  So I guess it was good while it lasted  :)

Will they let you use a friends cell phone as long as they are not also a member of the site.

How about using a computer to cash out? Or maybe you can get a virtual cell phone. Maybe it would be best if you contact the company & voice your current issue.

I don't know why exactly you don't have one, maybe cost, don't be confused between a cell phone and a smart phone which are expensive.  I suggest getting a Tracfone or something similar.  It is cheap and I only use it for special things like verification and if my landline goes down because I have cable or when I go on trips.  I guess you will just miss out on some things if you don't want to get a cell phone. 8)

When I first started doing the money places, I bought a cheap cell phone pd 10 dollars for 3 months service for things like that.

I have to use cell phones to verify payments through my apps but not survey sites like this.

its been awhile since I cashed out with them, Ive done surveys there before and they took a month to credit, so now all I do is the daily poll, so it takes me forever to make cashout

So they must have put this into effect since last time I cashed out with them July of last year
