    I was thinking to backup pictures taken on s4 and maybe upload some movies so i can watch them since the gallery links in with dropbox.

    What are your ideas?

    Well, if I go by some of our fellow forum users and some Verizon people, I will be using it along with the sd card to install mounds of apps . At least Samsung being the phone maker and all has the tech sense to at least think just the sd card works for that and not Dropbox. Samsung confirms to me that even builders of great things can have clueless people create wrong perception.

    If I were joking, this would be funny even to me. Sad really.

    Has anybody really been able to access this offer?

    I already had an account, but can't figure out how to increase it.

    Sent DB support an email, but haven't gotten a response yet.

    Is ATT offering this too? They have opted out in the past.

    I sorted my free 50gb out a few weeks back. Probably won't use it. If you use it for anything important then you will have to pay for it anyway when the 2 years free runs out. I think they are counting on that.

    When I went through the initial setup process of my S4 I got prompted to activate 50GB's of dropbox space, I think it is a samsung offer not carriers. It looks like the S4 backs ups photos and videos to dropbox after taking them.

    If you have not linked to dropbox try going to settingas > accounts > add account then link drop box, they send a confirmation email when your done.

    I think it is carrier dependent, at least the carrier you buy your phone from...I have had every Galaxy phone (S and Note series) so far on ATT and have never got to use any dropbox promotion. My wife has a t mobile S3 and got some deal on dropbox and the app was preinstalled on her S3. I use Drive, Box and Dropbox all because I have a Nexus 4. I have 50 GB on Box because I activated with an LG phone (Nexus 4). I like dropbox better but have like only 5 GB.

    I do not think it is a permanent offer like it is with Box in that after a year or so it reverts back to a smaller size. I am not certain of that though.

    Anyone able to active the 50GB on dropbox with an S4 bought by ATT?

    Thats a good idea, I used dropbox, then switched to google drive because of larger free space and cheaper upgrades, now im back to drop box because of the free 50 gigs

    It is a Samsung offer, but I guess the carriers can opt out. Did you have the dropbox app preinstalled on your unlocked version? Is the dropbox app preinstalled on the ATT S4?

    Edit:

    I guess this answers why I did not get it with my S3 on ATT...

    If you could sign in when setting up the phone, it was most likely preinstalled. It is a great offer from Samsung. I will wait to hear from ATT s4 users to see if they got the deal. Not that it ultimately affects getting the phone. 50GB on dropbox would be very nice since it allows you to automatically sync photo taken. I wish Box would add that feature.

    EDIT: I just noticed the carrier specific forums. I will ask about ATT there.

    The dropbox deal works out at 80 which is $120 i think. at least it knocks some money off the price

    I don't think I ever used it on my GS3, no reason to use it with my GS4. You guys are overblowing the space issue. It's 2 gb less than what the GS3 had. Pop in a 32 gb MicroSD card for your files, movies, pictures, and save the 9+ gb for apps. Some games are huge, but most apps are within then 20-200 mb range.

    Per Dropbox website:

    Is my Samsung phone or tablet eligible for the free space promotion?

    Back to Help Center

    If you have a brand new Samsung phone or tablet with Dropbox already installed, you may be eligible to earn 48 GB of free space for up to two years. To qualify:

    The Dropbox app must be pre-loaded on your device.
    You need to complete at least five steps from our Get Started guide.
    Your carrier must be participating in the promotion.

    Make sure Dropbox is pre-loaded

    Dropbox must be "pre-loaded" on your brand new phone or tablet, which means that the Dropbox app already came installed without the need to download it from the Google Play store.

    If the Dropbox app is pre-loaded on your device, you may qualify for 48 GB of bonus space for up to one year.

    Additionally, some devices that have the Dropbox app pre-loaded may also have the Dropbox "out-of-box experience," which means that the first time you turn on the device, you'll be asked to sign in to Dropbox or create a new account. If your device has the out-of-box experience, you may qualify for 48 GB of bonus space for up to two years.

    The first Dropbox account that signs in to the app on the device will get 48 GB of free space (assuming the other conditions are met). Each account is only able to claim this promotion once.
    Complete the Get Started guide

    To claim your extra space, you need to complete at least five steps from our Get Started guide. Please note that some steps require your desktop computer.
    Make sure your carrier is participating

    Some carriers have opted out of the promotion on phones otherwise eligible. Among those not currently participating are the following carriers:

    United States: AT&T
    Japan: NTT DoCoMo
    Korea: SK Telecom

    Verizon customers: Some Samsung devices on Verizon may be eligible for 48 GB of bonus space for one or two years. As described above, your device needs to be pre-loaded with the Dropbox app, or pre-loaded with the Dropbox out-of-box experience, to receive the applicable promotion. If your device does not have the Dropbox app pre-loaded, then it is not eligible.
