    Share the file with Dropbox , or Box, and give him access to your account.

    With only a 100 MB limit there's just no way you can be interactively share 500 MB files over the Internet in any way. On the outside chance you're referring to a 500 MB collection of text files then if they are compressed into a zip file archive, the resulting file would be well under that 100 MB limit. But other than that, copying that 500 MB to a USB flash drive and mail/courier is the only solution I can think of.

    The OP is trying to send an almost 500MB file, but only has 100MB of data available, which is presumably a pre-paid cellular package.

    Solution; find some WiFi, like McDonald's, KFC, Starbucks, hotel lobby, etc.

    Well I'm in China, and I pay 68 yuan CNY a month about $10 USD a month and it includes 1GB of data, 4G LTE with China Unicom. I could pay more and get additional GB if I need it. But on the other hand WiFi is quite ubiquitous in many places I go, like at home or the office, and many restaurants and hotels.

    Offline option is easy.

    USB stick, just put the thing in the post and mail it :thumbsupdroid: ....you said you got 27 days?

    Done that as well, needed to send 800GB of data to a friend, put a USB hardrive in the post, problem solved. :) It's quite amazing how much low-cost data bandwidth snail-mail has.


    My father sent me 2TB of data from the UK to China, online that would actually be quite difficult to do, UK to PRC.

    A DATA PACKET!

    Dad phoned me up, saying you left your movie disk behind my TV, I found it still plugged into the USB. Ok, put it in the post. :)

    OK, international air mail, e.g. United Kingdom to China, took 6 days. cost £5 GBP.

    Problems can always be solved by practical means, when online and clouds fail. :thumbsupdroid:

    Here's the thing, Dropbox is not available in China. And Baidu Pan is not available unless you can verify yourself with a +86 phone number, which is rather difficult for my father and anyone else in the UK. As I said, when online and clouds can fail.

    Good night! :)
