beware  you people without a phone, you need a phone to validate most of these survey sites!   you MUST have a phone, today.  VOIP, internet phone, is not permitted.

you must have a real phone, if you are too poor, too bad.   

I live in assisted living with a landline that has an extension and cannot make long distance calls.  i have skype, but not permitted.

too....if you give these sites your phone number, if just one of them sells your number to third party people, you will enjoy lots of spam calls and robo calls, or worse!

there is no incentive now for me to sign up for any more sitesuntil i get a phone....

 

no wonder the youth want socialism!

Not sure I agree with this.  Survey sites typically want your e-mail address to make sure you are a real person and know where to send rewards, and they may want your physical address for the same reason, but not sure why they would require you have a phone unless you intend to take phone surveys.  Heck, not even sure how they'd know you have a phone one way or the other, unless you use dial-up internet, but can't say I'm some sort of technical whiz.  

Can't say I've got any spam or robo calls due to taking surveys,  and on one side sounds like you are complaining about needing a phone, and on the other worried about spam calls from using one.

Have not encountered a survey site that required phone validation initially. The only one I have encountered that requires phone validation is OneOpinion , but that is only required when cashing out. The validation fails for my landline phone , but support is aware and will manually do the physical card redemption.
