    So I just had a notification on my phone that said something to the effect of "Get 100GB storage from Samsung". I clicked on it, and it took me to OneDrive (which I already had installed and use). It asked it I wanted to use Auto Backup, which I click OK to. I now have an extra 100GB space. I have a Verizon S6 32GB. Just an FYI, hope others get the same. I thought we were SOL.

    If you already have the app installed, click on "Apply for Samsung offer" under settings.

    I just downloaded the app and the first screen that popped up was 'Get 100GB free from Samsung'. All I had to do was sign in. I'm on AT&T.

    I was under the impression if you didn't have the app preloaded (I didn't) then your carrier pulled the offer. That doesn't appear to be true anymore. Although I don't have anything under the OneDrive Settings about "Apply for Samsung offer" (never did), so that might still be the preloaded app?

    Mine showed it, though once it processed the 100GB offer from when I signed up the option was taken away. It seems there was an update on the Microsoft side that when you launch OneDrive on a Samsung device it detects that and prompts the 100GB offer. You might just have to sign out, close the app and then reopen it to get that offer prompt or uninstall the app and reinstall.

    Edit: Or you might want to check your account settings in the app; they may have retroactively given you the 100GB.

    Evidently something transient, because as of 5:45 EDT, I don't get the offer. Not by closing and resigning in, not by uninstalling and reinstalling, not by creating a new account. 15GB to start, an additional 15GB for syncing pictures.

    Do you have to turn on auto backup in order to get this offer? I like to pick and choose what I put on the cloud.

    Yeah I ran my update this morning and got my 100 bonus gbs. Giving me a total of 130gbs. I will probably never use it all but I have it.

    Just got mine as well! Now... Which is better for photo backups, this or G+? I've been using G+, but now I'm not so sure...

    same here went into settings and had the samsung offer for a free 100GB of one drive storage for 2 years. I have Verizon so maybe somebody at Samsung heard about AT&T and Verizon not offering onedrive on phone from factory and this was there way to hold true to there offer of 100GB of free one drive storage with purchase of a S6

    I already went the BestBuy route for the 100GB offer but good to know VZW isn't screwing us (or Msft/Samsung won't let them screw us).

    I was pretty surprised to see OneDrive not present on the AT&T variant. I downloaded it myself and got the notification this morning about the free 100GB. Say what you want, but that's a really useful add-on and I'm glad Samsung included it.

    So say you save a bunch of stuff on OneDrive what do you do with it after the 2 years are up? That's why I've never liked these limited time offer deals.

    Valid question. I'm hoping there will be a similar deal in about 2 years when I'm looking to move on to another phone. If not, I'll have to move files to my computer or other service. Either way, I have 2 years to figure it out. Plus, I don't expect I'll be anywhere near the 100GB, but it's still nice to have when there is no SD Card.

    So what happens when 2 years is up and you used up almost 100gb, do they delete your data?

    about as useful as the crappy 50gb 'free' from box.net years ago that you later had to pay and subscribe or lose everything.

    Stevelam,
    I 'm pretty sure I still have 50GB free from Box that I got a few years ago with my Samsung tablet.

    edit: Yup, just checked, I still have 50GB of which I have used 36 MB. Maybe you were on a different 50 GB offer.
