    I've been trying this site but so far all I seem to do is to spend time completing prescreening questions without getting any surveys (only one so far). Is this a common experience?

    Yes, quite common. Theres usually a lull in studies, mostly around term break times. Just have to be patient.

    I'm going to pass on the pet food one, as I don't really want them harvesting my mobile number.

    I too. It sounds like a lot of work, writing their advertising copy for them, for very little.

    Regarding your phone number they are unable to do anything with your number, other then what they specify, under the Data Protection Act. Not saying dont worry, just think if they were being malicious they could do it a much easier way....I get enough rubbish texts from companies I owe money too that I doubt I would notice!!
