    Just found this rather nice app called Locket. Turns your lockscreen into a nice advertising board and pays you when you unlock your phone. (only 1c each time, and only up to 3 times an hour, kind of hoping that changes when they come out of beta, but hey it's free money for using your phone)

    Also pays you $1 a time for referring folks to the app.

    This is real money you can have paid into your paypal account.

    Refer me if u want. I dont use a lock screen but i wana give u the $1 :)
    Its actually a great idea. I bet a dev could EASILY hack it or use a "bot" to trip it 10000s of times a day though ;)
    EDIT it wants my email addy though so thats a NO sorry :beer:

    I just figured I'd try it... not too fussed about it needing email addresses.. not like I don't have several that I use for different things. Curious to see how much it makes through normal use. The link I posted in the first post is the referral link it gave me, apparently they are only doing the $1 for referrals while its in beta, nothing to lose by trying it ;)

    Totally :)
    How long is the ad there before u can close it?
    Theres carriers here who let you view ads to earn internet GBs which is pretty cool

    The ad is your lock screen... you just swipe it away immediately.
    It doesn't get in the way at all. They do need to add a pin unlock feature i think for the more security conscious, though from what I read that is in the works.

    Referral done.

    While we're on the subject, feel free to use any of my crapload of cloud storage referrals, there's a link in my sig to the whole list. ;)
    You could use disposable addresses. I like spamgourmet.com and dudmail.com but you could even use one that doesn't require you to sign up like tempinbox.com . I almost never give out my real email address to any sign-up for anything, no matter how legitimate.
