They do offer it for AT&T.

I own an AT&T model, and I had to hit up HTC chat to redeem it but they gave it to me. On the official changelog for the 1.58 build on HTC's website for the AT&T variant, one line is "Fix for Google Drive promotion redemption."

edit: they saw that I unlocked my bootloader (I guess HTCDev keeps a record of who requests unlock tokens) so the first person I spoke with couldn't help - but I jumped on again and the second person was quick to just shoot me an email link, and didn't even ask if I was unlocked or anything. Strange.

Ah, I stand corrected. Thanks for the heads up. Won't really do me much good as I have 65gb of space in drop box where I've only used 10gb but others could certainly benefit for sure

Same here, I got mine from the Galaxy S3 promo so my dropbox space expires this summer. So by doing this I can point my Google Drive storage folder to my Dropbox storage folder, and presto, data transferred and safe for another 2 years.

HA! Same here. Got my promo with my s3 but I just recently redeemed the space after cleaning up my email box. Totally forgot about it lol.

I went to the HTC website and chatted with a rep. He asked if I unlocked and I said yes. Apparently you can't redeem the space after unlocking. Even relocking still shows in the HTC system that the device was unlocked so...no drive space for me. Hopefully I'll never need to utilize warranty.

Edit: just saw your edit. May try that myself or if it fails again might just contact the big G

Double ninja edit: Chatted with a second rep and was denied again

It should work for AT&T users as well, just launch the Google Drive app, and either it will be presented upon running it for the first time during the tour, or you will need to go to the menu at the top right, and run the tour from there, but you will scroll up three times, and on the fourth it will present the offer!!!

Good luck to all the AT&T users trying to get their redemption! I am just thankful for this update, providing one of the features that was a selling point for this device...

Now, if only we could get a device that supported all of the M8 features, as well as things like the temp sensor, waterproofing, and SAMOLED display that the S5 has... Unfortunately, build quality like this is simply not compatible with some of those features... Here's to hoping though!

Some people had luck trying this: Get them on the horn again, and if they asked if you unlocked, say you requested a token but when you were presented with the warning you changed your mind and did not unlock your phone because you didn't know it would void the warranty and you wanted to keep that intact. They can only prove up to them emailing you an unlock token, they can't say what you do after that.

Excellent suggestion but surely they've made a record of it now that I've contracted then several times. I suppose I'll give it one more go. We'll see, lol

Edit: It was a no go. Even gave serial number this time instead of imei and used different name and email address. It showed that it was registered to me and was noted that the boot loader is unlocked. Was just gonna give the space away to a buddy but I guess he's SOL. I'll hit up big G tomorrow and report back with how that went.
