Sorry AT&T and Verizon customers who have decided to buy the Samsung Galaxy S3 from either of the two carriers. Both AT&T and Verizon have opted out of the “free 50GB Dropbox storage” scheme that the Galaxy S3 comes with, which will certainly make those Dropbox fans quite unhappy.
According to a Dropbox support page which answers the question whether your Samsung device qualifies for the free 50GB storage offer, “Select carriers have opted-out of the promotion on phones otherwise eligible. Unfortunately, AT&T and Verizon are among these carriers not currently participating.”
So there you go, one of the added advantage of the Galaxy S3 is not going to be available for AT&T and Verizon customers. Even though the 50GB storage would be offered for a limited period of two years, it’s disappointing to see both the carriers opting out of providing the offer to its customers. Once again, carriers get their way with things, which shall probably continue for years to come.
