Smartphone No Way
« on: January 06, 2021, 11:53:30 am »
Don't have a smartphone just a unsmartphone. I was thinking of getting  one to use Ibotta or others like that. You can make money just from receipts. Find them on th3 ground and use it I know people do that. But if your paying 60.00 a month like my son is not worth it.

Except that when you agree to the TOS you agree to only upload your own personal receipts so I would not brag online that I was using receipts I found on the ground. I don't know what an unsmartphone even is but usually you have to have a smart phone capable of downloading apps and use the camera thru the app to submit receipts to the places that pay you to upload receipts.

I finally had to get a smartphone a few months ago because my eye doctors wouldn't even let me keep an appointment unless I call from the car when I get there (sheesh smh )  I heard of other places doing this too so I figure if this is going to be the new way of doing things.. I might as well keep up.

I love my smartphone. I don't think I would ever go back to using a regular cell phone.

We are on Total Wireless. 2 phones for $65 a month. I am not sure what 1 phone would be, but that includes unlimited text, talk and 15 g. data. They use Verizon towers and have good service. My smart phone is very basic, and cost like $80.

I broke dovvn and got a smartphone about a 1 1/2 years ago.   It is not an Apple I-phone, as those cost a fortune.   It's a ZTE, android, 5.5 inch screen.  I got it on Amazon vvith a GC, on sale for $80.

I am not willing to do surveys or anything else on my smart phone. I have a desktop and a tablet. Those two are good enough for sites like FC.

I am with Spectrum Mobile which is owned by Charter. Spectrum bought Time Warner. It all gets confusing.

Spectrum offers a great deal. I get unlimited text and calls plus one gig for $14 a month. However in order to get this deal, I must have internet with Spectrum which I do.

I also am paying on a Samsung Galaxy A1

Are yoy aware that you can buy an unlocked used smartphone on Ebay for less than $50 and use it on Wi-fi for free?

I also am paying on a Samsung Galaxy A10 e, a really good android that I got through Spectrum for $6.50 a month for two years. After paying off this phone, I own it.

You do not need a "smartphone" to make a phone call.  A prepaid $10 a month phone will allow you to make a phone call to your doctor office from your car.  Besides that unless your doc is in a huge complex you could probably call from home and tell them you will be there for the appt and you will knock on the door when you get there.  My dentist does the same thing ::) and when I call they come to the door and motion for me to approach the door so it really would not make a diff.

I bought a refurbished smartphone from tracfone for $10. I did not add any minutes to it or a phone number and use it with wifi only for apps.
