This one is called Smartmark. It re-starts up in about a month after finishing a move from the snowy climes of PA to the also snowy this year climes of VA, and plans to continue giving away unlimited talk, text, and 5Gb data each and every month on the AT&T network.
The process is BYOD where you put their SIM in any unlocked GSM phone. The way it works is that you pay a one-time $100 enrollment fee (price is dealer dependent, so sure to drop as more dealers get involved) and download an app that asks you up to seven questions each day, like "How often do you get a haircut".
Unlike Swagbucks, everyone is automatically qualified to participate, whether you fit into a particular demographic or not. Unlike Swagbucks, where a survey that could take up to 15 minutes might earn you $2 at most - and possibly less, each survey of seven or less multiple choice questions gets you cell service on the AT&T network for the day with up to 5Gb of data for the month,
With the recent enrollment fee of $40 to $50 recently put in place at RIngplus which gets you a promise that someone might answer the phone when you call with questions - at least for now, I think its time to consider alternatives.
I am not a representative of this company, nor do I much care whether this specific firm or any other is successful in bringing much needed reform to the cellular communications industry. I do believe, however, that we're on the cusp of some major changes in the way that industry is organized and I look forward to learning and experiencing more of those changes as they evolve.
It's always good to have more options and just maybe we'll start getting the kind of service we should have been getting long ago as a result.. I look forward to reading your thoughts.
This might be official Smart Mark or put together by a reseller.

A: No, you can answer the questions at any time during the day, or even wait until the next day, although making that a habit could jeopardize your service

A: No, but to set up unlocked GSM phones to tether is easy and so far no one has been disqualified for doing it.
