I basically banished Google connectivity from my android phone (saves battery and privacy at the cost of user-friendliness) but as a result I can't access the Play store. I downloaded the previous versions of CellNUVO's app from apkpure.com but as of this writing they don't have anything newer than 2.61
CellNUVO "support" told me I need the newest version of the app to top up my service since I'm a legacy user (my phone # in the app is still the one CellNUVO lost when they refused to pay Sprint) and my phone # doesn't match up with what redpocket has on file.
Just wondering if any of you fellow frustrated folks out there can source an .apk compatible with the 4.4.2 OS - or better yet, advise what files to edit locally to change the number listed in my app without having to update.
What privacy issue are you concerned with? Loading the CN app, that probably has some kind of tracker enabled, means you lost privacy. Disabling tracking would probably mean the app would not work. CN is effectively an ad-ware that pays you.
Having a signature is a very important security measure - especially for users with root access to their devices. It aids in ensuring an app hasn't been modified with malicious code. Please don't suggest use of unsigned apps, especially when they're linked to entities which have a user's credit card information.
If you have a signed source I'd be ever so grateful.
Found a version of 2.74 that's signed and hashed. Wasn't via this forum, but thanks to the contributors regardless.
Now the question remains: what's the next hassle/roadblock CellNUVO is going to throw at users to prevent me from using my 600+ gold?
I'd like to believe that I have my next five years of cell service covered, but I haven't even had five consecutive MONTHS of using CellNUVO without some ridiculous dysfunction interrupting my service. My hopes aren't high that this trend isn't indicative of future difficulties.
Recently downloaded the App from Google Play and it was indeed running smooth on my Google Pixle until I updated to Android 8.0. Now whenever I will open the app it's simply loading a blank screen and crashing eventually after few seconds. It's very annoying.
Sounds like Android 8.0 update has broken something in the CN app.
Check to see if Google Play has a more recent version for an update.
If not, uninstall the app and install a fresh copy. (No worries about losing any point balance-- this seems to always transfer cleanly-- but most would recommend taking a screenshot of the Account information in the Settings menu of the app.... if you can get to it.)
(To be clear-- I don't think there's anything wrong with your Android 8 update-- some configuration in the CN app just isn't working right with it, so the logical route would be for a CellNuvo update or re-install to set up correctly for Android 8.)
