It's free for me I got a lot of referrals and got some free space when I turned camera upload on (You can go in the settings and from there is an option to upload your your photos from your phone straight to dropbox. I think for every 500MB you upload you get 1GB free or something similar.)
When I bought my Galaxy S3 they have a deal where you get 50GB free space for two years So that's why I have so much.
No problems with it so far, transfer speeds are good and it's very useful for keeping backups on as I don't trust my laptop to survive another couple of years

My CDPlant, thanks for that. Sounds good, almost too good to be true long term. It makes me wonder if they have a long term goal? Get enough punters to use as much data as they can so they become reliant upon it, then charge a lot of money for continuing the service later. Or is this just me that thinks this...
I do a nandroid backup on the phone when switching ROMs.
I don't really have anything on my phone that I don't already have somewhere on my PC.
All my contacts/pics etc are backed up to google and lookout. I don't feel the need to have any additional backups.

I have actually have no nandroids as of now , seeing how my ARHD became randomly buggy... ( mabye h/w fault)
I have backed up apps via TB , and some pictures on DropBox ( 32GB ) .
When my PC is all set up , I would probably be making monthly backups of everything on my SD card (32GB as its getting full pretty easily.
I also have a 50GB Box account, but I never really use it. I don't use Google Drive as I heard that Google 'owns' the files you upload.
(sidenote) My school said they might buy 12 Microsoft Surface Tablets for the languages section for e-books and dictionaries.... I might even try to suggest the Android root route ( sorry , too much on my mind )
The only stuff that I would have on my phone that would be lost if it was stolen are, possibly, some pictures and, again possibly, an additional contact that hadn't yet been backed up to my PC. I regard the PC as much safer for all my data (and the PC is backed up to a USB drive) and it is the 'master' for contacts/calendar/everything else ....
The only thing I use the 'cloud' for is syncing Microsoft OneNote between my PC and phone.
The HTC Desire HD is the big-screened successor to the HTC Desire, a device that took much of Europe by storm when launched in the spring of 2010. The Desire HD followed during fall of the same year, earning its title from a large 4.3-inch display,... Read More
