Mobile Performance Meter is the app that sends you gift cards for doing nothing but using your phone
New users get a 100 point reward, and you are asked to complete at least one survey a month. The app is not available in every state, but some more have just been added. If you've been turned down before, you might want to try it again.
In this skeptical and cynical age we live in, especially in light of the NSA scandal, it will be interesting to see how many people are willing to install the app. So far, that number is between 50,000 and 100,000. Embee Mobile, the developer of the app, is collecting information for the Nielsen Company, an extremely legitimate firm that is known for its weekly television ratings. Apparently, Nielsen is interested in the quality of voice and data services on your phone.
If you're interested in earning gift cards for doing nothing different with your phone than what you've always done with it, you can find the app in the Google Play Store.

Judging from the retailers, I can safely conclude that this is not for my country

This could be just NSAs front. I'm not falling for this, keep your meter points.

Well if they gave a crap about you they'd already be watching you. Why fight it?
I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords.

scam? 10,000 points for =$100 gift card
BUT 20 points a day is 365*20=7,300
plus surveys 150 points * 12 months = 1,800
thats 9,100 points total you can earn in a year.

Lol. Well here goes nothing. I signed up with my AT&T and T-Mobile phones. I'm aiming to get a bunch of Amazon gift cards to buy more phone accessories. My phones can work to pay for their own accessories! Get a job hippy phone!

Besides the absurd permissions to reroute outgoing calls and receiving text, it's at least a battery hog for requiring precise GPS location and preventing sleep mode. I'd skip the lentil soup...

If I could make $50 a month I'd consider it. How about if my phone service wants the info that bad they just credit my account and I'll fill out a survey on how bad they suck from time to time?
