    Cellnuvo - how does it work?

    I see from time to time topics regarding CellNUVO, but I do not understand how it works. I do not see link to order SIM or phone, their app requires referral code. What is it?

    You can't sign up right now. Lots of cellnuvo customers hang out at www.nthcircle.com. They went through some difficulties switching over to redpocket these past 3 months and are having to change the way they do things.

    Basically you load their app and can swipe to watch ads. These give you silver which theoretically you can use for service. The underlying mvno is currently redpocket. That will probably change as they are having issues with that relationship.

    It's impossible to get service from cellnuvo these days. If you want to give yourself a migraine, go to that nthcircle site. Be forewarned, don't dare post anything that might interrupt the shills' circle jerk. You'll be gang-banned for sure.

    How does cellnuvo work?

    By getting you to work for cellnuvo.

    You swipe. They earn.

    You want to redeem your "credits". Not easy.

    They promised redemptions for phones throughout 2017. Never happened. They promised redemptions for Amazon credits. Didn't happen.

    Some have gotten low value redemptions but they've contacted the owner directly and have been involved in promoting and defending cellnuvo heavily.

    They do make big mess in past 4 months. However things are getting better. I've already redeemed 4 times of $10 worth "silvers" to my redpocket account in past 2 weeks.

    4 times? Do you have 4 Red Pocket accounts?

    Oh thanks for clarification.

    Are you going to refill some more to cash your gold out?

    Sounds like you like that Red Pocket plan so it would make sense to redeem as much as possible.

    Lots of customers at nthcircle? Looks like less than 10.

    They're going to ditch Red Pocket and go to another MVNO? How do you know that? Source please.

    I think I understood you pretty well. You're here advertising for CellNuvo, aka your "hobby." You ignore all of its bad points and only tout the good. As per the example above, you ignore that CellNuvo refuses to allow its users to cash out their money, withholding service, and holding their phone numbers hostage for months on end. And your sad excuse for all that is "the past is the past." You resort to bandwagon arguments like "it's very popular!" And when all else fails, you resort to casting aspersion of others "wasting time in CellNuvo threads."

    Seriously, you should listen to yourself and hear how laughable you sound.

    CellNuvo was and is a click-farming business. Worse, it's a scam that refuses to pay its users their rightful money. That's a tough one to spin, and I don't care what you call it.

    >Feel free to have the last word as I am out of here.

    Gee thanks!
    You summed that up quite nicely!

    One very important thing to be aware of is what does "success" with cellnuvo look like? What are the thoughts of an actual customer who was successful at redeeming all of their gold?

    Here is one such account from a customer called "finally!":

    I will put my CN experience up against any of yours for being horrible, ridiculous, intolerable and disgusting. My personal circumstances in the second half of August when my line died could not possibly have been more inconvenient. I literally went on the road for two weeks about an hour before service collapsed. For the next 14 days, driving alone around the country, I was limited to pulling off the highway and sitting in my car outside a Starbucks, etc. whenever I needed to communicate with the world during the day. And then for the next four months, I exchanged more than 100 ever-more-ridiculous emails with CN's so-called "support" department, and of course none of those emails led to any sort of resolution whatsoever. Nearly all of those emails, by the way, were CCed to Tom or sent to him directly. He never uttered a peep.

    And then yesterday, to my absolute astonishment, in a chat with one of the CN minions, I was able to cash out 122 gold to a family member's sprint account. That was slightly more than her upcoming bill, but sprint -- you know, a functioning company that is not based on deceit and incompetence -- processed the payment instantly and applied the rest to her account as a future credit. I want to make it clear, before the apologists here try to make this out as something else, that this is NOT a pro CN posting. The company is despicable: stunningly incompetent at best, and criminally dishonest at worst. One of the hallmarks of Ponzi schemes is that occasionally, somebody has to be paid just to keep up appearances. So it won't surprise me at all if I eventually learn that I am just that lucky person.

    But I wanted to report these happy results so the many of you here who are just as frustrated can see what happened. I'm attaching a transcript of the chat that eventually led to a resolution. You want to read it from the bottom up so you can grasp the process.

    And now that I have a mere 13 silver left in my account, I also want to be very clear that I am absolutely done with CN. I'm not surprised to hear that the swiping isn't working at the moment, but regardless, there won't be any more swiping from me. I'm deleting the app. Get what you can out of them and run away. What a hideous mess. Perhaps you can use the approach in my chat to get something good for yourself. And please note that even halfway through the ultimately successful process, they were still giving me the BS line about "oh just give it more time" as if something actually was in the pipeline, when of course it wasn't. As you'll see, they even basically admitted that it never was actually happening, later in the chat. And then, magically, when I got just tough enough or just lucky enough, they made it happen in less than 15 minutes. So the whole "24 hours or maybe more" thing? That's a complete ruse. Don't buy it.

    If you know someone who has an account with one of the big four (or with Amazon...yeah, sure), work it out with them that you will attempt to send payment of your total in golds to their account, and they can then pay you back. Even if you're trying to maintain a red pocket account, cash out all your gold now as I did, and then pay red pocket out of the proceeds. Don't mess around with this company any longer than you have to.

    To be clear it isn't all rosy but the other poster wants to pick and choose the negative so here are some of the positive.

    15 success stories. I suppose that's not bad after 4 months.

    Btw, you said cellnuvo were going to end the Red Pocket relationship. Any update on that?

    How about the iPhone app and redemption on Amazon? (Yeah, that Amazon).

    ATTENTION:

    Some of you appear to have not understood my warning in the previous thread.

    Discuss the carrier, the service, the devices, experiences both good and bad. At no time will personal attacks or jabs at each other be necessary. Also, at no time is responding to every single negative account necessary either--people can have both good and bad experiences. And for those of you who don't know...deleting a post doesn't mean it can't be seen by staff--I don't really care how long it was up before taken down, if you break the rules and later delete the post, I'll still ban you for your stupidity.

    So, enough is enough. Act like adults. Discuss the carrier, services, devices, etc, etc, etc and leave the childish ******** in your lives outside Hofo. The staff and everyone else here thanks you.

    Is Cellnuvo considered to be an MVNO? Do they even provide wireless service?

    No, they're not. And likely never did. They were partnered with another company to provide cell service (Cellnuvo was the "front" and the actual services company handled the "back"). That deal eventually ended and now CN has remade themselves as a "bill paying" company. So you choose whatever company they have established a relationship, which appears to be the Big 4 and Redpocket and you arrange to pay your cell bill through them via your accumulated gold. They have nothing to do with providing cell service.
