Using my phone to MyLot

I use my Palm Centro to access my account here at MyLot almost every day. I enjoy checking out the new posts as well as checking on the discussions that I replied to. It was yesterday when I realized that I wasn't getting credit for all of the participation that I was doing while using my phone. Does anyone else access MyLot from their phone and if so, do you get credited for your activity?

There are quite a few pre-paid plans out there that are affordable. To me, the most important thing about having a cell phone is the safety aspect.

Plus I can't use a cell at work anyway. So I first got rid of my cell when my son got his own and I got sick of the stupid calls. Plus I really couldn't afford it. But we are not to have our cell phones on the floor at work. I was sent home 3 days no pay for answering mine when we had no power. Well, that never happened to anyone else. One girl got fired for being on hers all the time. So yeah no cell at work. have a nice day.

I think that a cell phone is important just for security in case you need to get a hold of someone in the event of an emergency.

Hi rjbass. Yes I do, I use my iPhone to post and respond here in mylot and been credited too. I have a post plan that has free internet access so I really consume it as much as I can. Its so nice since I can still be online even if I am on mobile which is very often to happen.

I've been thinking of the iPhone for my next model. How do you find the on screen typing in compared to a keyboard? That is my only concern.

At first I find it difficult since iPhone's screen only works with organic things like our thumb so its kindda sensitive when I use my fingers. As I use it often I get used to it and now I find it very convenient same as the normal keypads. Go for an iPhone

Thanks for your feedback. I also really like that it's touchscreen...a must for me.

I wish I could access MyLot from my phone. Hopefully in the future MyLot will have a feature that will let us be able to post discussions from a text message or something.

That's a really good idea. You should ask admin when they are coming out with a mobile site so people can text.

When I first posted this discussion I was also concerned with whether or not I was receiving credit so I did some tests and it appears that I am getting compensated :)

Using cell phone for internet wouldn't work for me. I am a bog screen person. Small screen makes it difficult to work.... I admire people who can easy send text messages and access Internet on their cell phone..

lol. I really enjoy having access to the internet and email on my phone. But though it keeps me connected to friends, family, and coworkers, sometimes I want to be disconnected and that's hard when everyone knows you can respond at will. But such is life :)
