No, a smartphone is not mandatory in the majority of the activations administered by Quikly. However, for some activations, the sponsor might decide to require a phone number. You can choose to receive Quikly live release announcements via SMS text message (standard rates apply) OR through email. This option is available on the same screen on which you enter your cell phone number. While a smartphone is beneficial, you may also take the link that is sent through SMS and manually enter it into your computer. But be sure you’re entering it EXACTLY as it appears.
