eh I have the 50 gb for my TouchPad already and I hardly ever use it. Without a desktop syncing app for free, it has no use to me. Plus, I'm on Linux so finding one that works on here is rare. DropBox literally works on EVERYTHING and syncs for free. I'm good with that.

Thanks for the heads-up. 50GB is good, but there are restrictions of 10GB bandwidth (per month? upload, download, or both? I couldn't find any info on their website) and maximum file size of 100MB for free accounts.

I forgot about Titanium Backup's Dropbox sync feature, so I can't switch to Box just yet. I'll use it as a backup for Dropbox until Titanium offers Box syncing also.

I'll try it and see for myself. If they ask for my cell number in order to get the free 50GB of storage I'll let you know. EDIT: Was not asked to give cellphone # , at least not on the phone side. Don't have laptop. NoNameFace, at what point were you asked for your cellphone #?

Right on the signup page https://www.box.com/signup

I had thought that they just wanted the make and model of my phone, but I got an error stating invalid phone number. If you sign up from your phone, perhaps they are auto-snagging your phone number that way, but you're just not seeing it? Dunno, it doesn't feel right to me.

Oh, I do most everything from my PC since I'm in front of it almost all day.

Hey AO, I'm just asking a general question. I'm not directing any anger or ill will toward anyone here. The fact of matter is, I thought the 50GB of free storage was great until I discovered that the app won't install on the sd card Then I realized that the Memory Manager app from San Disk works perfectly with box, so problem solved

I read this https://www.box.com/static/html/privacy.html and have come to the conclusion that phone number is not needed unless for confirmation of manufacturer and model of phone.

When you sign up through the app it can verify your model is LG so I'm assuming that's why they asked on your pc to verify its for LG as this is only for LG owners.

It still works. I don't think its only for LG phones now. I just read this article, signed up from my laptop on box.com, downloaded the .apk from the article,

BAM!

50GB




It did ask for my phone number when I signed up, which I didn't really like, but after signing up I edited my account and put in a different number.

Cool, thanks for posting. You have to go to the site to upload files and I wasn't able to upload folders, only files. It won't replace dropbox for me but it's nice to know that I have 50gb if I want it.

The fear of giving them your number is rather ridiculous.
If you use it from your phone, they will have your phone number anyhow, the only difference is if it shows up on the web page.

Weather it's ridiculous or not is purely a matter of opinion. Some like their privacy, which does not make their feelings about sharing their phone number any less valid than those who don't mind sharing their number.

Calling it ridiculous simply because you do not agree, well, that's just not right.
