View Full Version : Get paid to read text messages on cell phones?

Hi, I have heard of a few companies that will pay you to read text messages sent to your cell phone. Do any of you know the names of any of the websites that will do this? Do they actually pay (could you scan some checks)? How much did you get?

I remember reading up on the deal... and I would say "no thanks" to that. It looked like there was a potential to make only a few dollars per month for a LOT of annoying alerts.

Another one a friend told me about is adbroadcast.com.
I believe it's $.10/ad sent to your phone, but I haven't looked into it yet.

where will this advertising assult ever end?? first our computer desktops via banners and alladvantage-esque companies. then it was myfreecar.com which paid you to advertise on your car. now being paid to get advertisements on your cell phone?? sheesh!! what next?? being paid to have advertisements printed on my toilet paper? or to have advertisements piped into a hole in the back of my head so that i receive advertisements subliminally as i sleep?? or even throughout the day?? if we are going to stop this assult of advertisers, it must stop now!! i feel as though americans are already numb to advertisements as it is. this is just making it worse. advertising is losing it's effectiveness because so many people surround themselves with it just to make a quick buck. but is it really worth it? i personally would like to make my own choices and not be forced into them by companies. let's start a petition and lobby these cell phone advertisers as well as these "get-paid-to-surf" companies to lay off a little!! http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/cool.gif

It's just not worth it to have advertising coming to my cell phone.

Oh, come on now.
The powers that be -- really!
This is capitalism at work: Company A offers Person B money to do X, Y, and Z; Person B has free choice in accepting the offer, and Company A can do nothing if Person B declines. If Person B wants to be annoyed all day long to make a buck -- the Declaration of Independence says something about freedom of the pursuit of happiness, now doesn't it? Just let him keep the message alert volume down on his phone so he doesn't bother the people around him!
