Default Box.com - 50GB free storage with an LG Android phone promotion - Works with N4

Box.com has a promotion where they offer 50GB of cloud storage (with no expiry date, unlike Dropbox) to users who buy an LG Android device.

Turns out, it works with the Nexus 4. Got upgraded from 25 to 50GB as soon as i downloaded the Box app and logged in.

Yay!!

The only problem is you have to use Box.

Plus the upload size limit is terrible! Something like you can only upload 100mb files!

There aren't many providers who offer large amounts of storage for free. I for one don't mind the upload limit.
Been using box for about 3 months now and I've had no issues with it. It has a decent android app too.

Plus, Titanium Backup Pro syncs directly to Box. Good way to keep a backup of your apps (Which don't usually exceed 100mb)

Nice!

Just installed on my Nexus 4 and sure enough, upgraded to 50GB.

Thanks for the heads up.

Box can give me 4343345 GB of storage but with the 100mb upload size limit I still won't use it.

Nice find tho, I had no idea.

I already have 50 free gigs from an Android promotion awhile ago. So it would be pretty sweet if I had the Nexus 4, so I could attempt to see if they would upgrade my account to 100gigs

A "friend of mine" did this on an LG display phone in a carrier store and it worked in upgrading his account no matter what phone he used. Login once from am LG phone and the 50GBs are yours. This of course was over a year ago. They could have fixed that by now.
