lol - I bought a cheap wireless hotspot and never activated it. The company offered me $25 to activate it, which was more than what I paid for it.
Not sure how this makes financial sense for the company but hey I'm not complaining.
@ishara i guess they make money from data they harvest? or just hitting a certain subscriber number will net them more investors? tech companies are weird.
@tootbrute Perhaps - it probably helps the marketing/sales division hit some numbers. They'll definitely be emailing me again in the next few months asking why I haven't bought more minutes, but it's easy enough to ignore.
