    I use Smart Firsts. 25 from Amazon just now. Its Amazons best selling phone. Prices varies on Amazon, sometimes you can get them for 17. 4 GB memory. Swaggy apps work fine.

    If Swagbucks suddenly up the requirements for using apps, they'll lose a lot of users, so my guess is that's unlikely to happen soon.

    IMO its more worthwhile if you also use other Apps and keep your phones busy. Unfortunately, all earnings Apps are pants, but I think Apptrailers is best of the rest.

    and now the survey profile questions (10 for 2 SB) didn't credit, jumped straight back to the next question on the next round
    all surveys screened me out after 10 minutes (b*st*rds), just one of these days, so it seems

    Also just did a PL survey for 17 points () answered all the questions, finished it and got "bummer, here's 1 point" Really thought I was going to get that one as it was quite easy. No point putting in a ticket as they'll just say that I didn't qualify for something in it, they have no control over the surveys, blah blah blah.

    Unless they only take 1-2 minutes, I stopped doing them when they pay that low. They really are taking the !!!!ing !!!! with PL payouts. I get Tolunas one through PL sometimes that are for 17SB - the same surveys that if you do them from the homepage you get 70SB. It's a joke. I'll just say I'm 2 years old and take my 1SB disqualification - they are con merchants.

    Engageme not working for me today. The watched videos counter was going up, but the SB counter on the right stayed on zero throughout. Luckily there was a travel comparison 1SB offer on OfferToro for the to do list.
