My cell phone is low on balance, so I don't do this anyway, but we gave my husbands number once, and we didn't think nothing of it, till a place took 10.00 from his phone, they were going to do this monthy too, we about never got it sorted out, then they sent him a 10.00 check for the money and no one would cash it, because they never heard of the place, so we were out 10.00, and he needed the money on there for his job.

I am just so skeptical about giving my cell phone number out on these offers. I do have limited messaging, but I like to keep my cell just for people I know. I have tons of junk email coming in as a result of some of these other offers, so I can imagine how many other places would start texting me a lot of crap...

I have a Go Phone that is active but doesn't have any minutes on it that I give out for the offers. They take the phone because it is registered and active, but they can't call or text it. The offers that required you to put in a pin number I just skipped.

Word of warning! Some companies WILL sell or share your phone numbers! I gave out my land line number once and had people calling within the next day! Be sure to put your number on the National Do Not Call Registry: https://www.donotcall.gov/ . If you haven't heard of this registry before you should check into it! Numbers placed on the Do Not Call Registry will not receive calls fro telemarketers. This law went into place in February of 2008. The registry is good for both home and mobile phones.

Hi Folks what is the deal with the offers that want your cell phone.. Do they charge you the 9.99 right away? or can you cancel before they do...
you normally dont if u look around the page there should be a skip or no thanks button they sumtime hides it
