If you are using cloud storage currently, you are probably familiar with box.net. Similar to dropbox and other services, it allows you to store your data within the “cloud”. You can register for a free account and receive 5GB of storage, all for free. This is a great way to get your feet wet if you are new to this.
However, there are some of us who use these services to store everything under the sun and that 5GB doesn’t cut it unless you upgrade for a fee. There’s a small promotion going on right now for users of LG phones on Android. If you register or log in with one, you get upgrade to 50GB of storage. Yup, 50 whopping gigs.
To do this, find a user with a LG phone and log in with your account on the box.net app. You’ll be automatically upgraded to 50GB.
Or try this if you are on a rooted phone.
- Make a backup of your /system/build.prop file.
- Open your /system/build.prop file as a text file and edit (use root explorer or equivalent) the following lines to show this:
Save the file and reboot. After that, log into your account on the box.net app and you’ll be upgraded. Once you are done, restore the backed up build.prop file and reboot to change back.
Better hurry, this promo ends on 12/31/2011.
