That said, I'm on a rooted Android device running 4.2.2 (an outdated operating system) with as many google play/services/framework components disabled as possible. Essentially, I don't have a google ad ID. This might be why I don't get any ads via th CN app anymore.

I'm sitting on a stockpile of 500+ gold that I earned in the "good old days" before CN screwed over Sprint and thus lost a bunch of users' numbers, prior to partnering with RedPocket. My intent is to simply pay my RP bills with CN gold for the next few years, then figure something else out when I need to.

I rely on my cell service for my job, and CN really F'ed me over with their shenanigans. On the order of thousands of dollars. I wrote to CN customer support and even reached out to Tom directly... and he never even apologized (neither he or the CN support at the time even replied to me).

I mention all of this because I want to establish that I am NOT a CellNuvo fanboy by any means. With all that backstory out there... I've had ZERO problems paying for my RedPocket service via CellNuvo for about a year now, even when I've changed plans. CN revamped the support system a while ago and they've been extremely responsive ever since.

I never receive my bonus % credit (silver/gold) that they offered to users to make amends for screwing customers over... but I'm not surprised.

TL;DR: CN has definitely improved since its inception, and it seems to work for some users. I'm more-or-less grandfathered in due to existing balance and swipe a few times per month just to confirm that ads remain non-functional for me. Payments ARE solidly functional, but I have no useful input regarding earning potential.

Also, congrats on making me come out of lurking for many months.


Maybe best to cash out and try free up

The shenanigans are in the past. Many of us moved on. The extra 10% I received helped with the pain for me yes some got hurt because of their phone number. But you also have to take some responsibility. I remember almost losing my number with ringplus fiasco. Learning from that mistake I ported my number over to Google voice. So when cellnuvo had issues. It did not affect me.

A family member that uses their phone for business. Only goes direct to the carrier. No resellers.

If I were to look for my petard where might I find it?

They're easier to find by their absence, following a big bang and finding yourself laying stunned in an unexpected position. At least in my experience.
The time unit encompassing that brief period when you realize what's happening has been defined as an ohnosecond.

What's funny is that I have never gotten this ad even once!

A bit from here:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoist_with_his_own_petard

"Hoist with his own petard" is a phrase from a speech in William Shakespeare's play Hamlet that has become proverbial. The phrase's meaning is literally that the bomb-maker (a "petard" is a small explosive device) is blown up ("hoisted" off the ground) with his own bomb, and indicates an ironic reversal or poetic justice.

There is no FDIC for this Gold bank account so I cashed out most of my stockpile for fear of CN going under. With the $100 monthly limit it took many months. I still swipe and seem to get surveys and ads most of the time. When I don't seem to be getting any ads I swipe left to look for super silver deals and that seems to get more adds going again. You could always pay friends and family phone accounts with your Gold to lower you stockpile risk.

Our experience has been a mix for us (three people including myself). Still, we are meeting our goals ($198 per month for the two family plans consisting of 7 unlimited everything lines). On some days we just get mainly 1 pointers, but the surveys and the Match-All-Pot s have made up on those days.

In fact, two accounts have consistently hit 100 gold each month which effectively is about 3333 silver each day. We accomplish this by swiping when watching TV or performing tasks that inherently require a wait.

I also recently placed an order for an S9 using CellNuvo funds and expect the funds to become available by the 18th (the latest) based on the update by CellNuvo (10 business days). We simply can't complain and are grateful for CellNuvo.

Interesting observations & shared experiences.
Thanks for sharing all this folks.

For me CN remains a totally 'no hurry' sort of thing.
One day I'll stick their app onto a newer device so that it'll work again & try to get my balance into that.
BUT - I've enough other stuff to keep me busy such that it is not near the top of my to-do list.

Thanks.

Et_Z, getting your balance onto a new device is as simple as can be now, when you're ready-- just loading the app on the new device, and following a few easy steps. You really just need your registered email address, which shows in the settings menu of your current device.
