Get Free 50GB Of Storage For Life On Box.Net - If You're An iPhone, iPad Or iPod Touch User

Now through December 2, cloud storage provider Box.net is giving away free 50GB accounts you can use forever. The account is good on your PC too, but to get the 50GB upgrade, you'll need to download and sign in or register from the iPhone or iPad app.

Basically anyone who uses a Box Personal account on an iOS device will get this upgraded free storage space (increased from the usual 5GB of free space usually doled out). According to Box.net's blog post introducing the offer, you'll also get an increased file size upload limit of 100MB instead of 25MB.

It's unfortunate that Android and other mobile users aren't getting this same love, but one of the comments on the blog post suggest a "fix" (we haven't tested this yet):

Download iTunes. Make an account. Go to Apple Store. Download the app on the device. Create account get 50GB space. Go to the phone's settings and scroll down to Store. Click on logout so it logs you out of your iTunes account. Also remember to delete the App off the phone.

You have 50 days from now to grab your 50GB of free space. What do you think? Will you be using Box.net for your cloud storage now?

    Another offering that has leeched itself onto Apple at the exclusion of every other platform.

    Box.net FAIL

    And you cannot sync or use the desktop app unless you upgrade. So this along with the 100mb upload limitation pretty much renders this offer futile.

    Just signed myself and wife up for the 50gb. Nice, but would be great if we could sync from our PCs like DropBox without the Business upgrade.

    As others have said, having to pay $15 per user to sync to the desktop is just stupid.
