AT&T may not be the best carrier one can get, but that doesn’t mean they’re the Devil incarnate, either. After all, it’s not that common to offer 50 GB of free cloud storage… at least not yet, so why not step forward and take full advantage of this early offer? I don’t know about you, but I surely can find some use to that amount of space – better be paranoid and keep your stuff in the cloud using at least two or three such services, than wake up one day with all your personal photos gone.
To shorten a story that may become needlessly long, here’s what you have to do if you want to claim the free 50 GB of cloud storage offered by AT&T right now, as of July 26, 2013 (this surely is a time-limited offer, but we don’t know yet for how long it’s supposed to last, so go ahead and grab yours while you can!):
1. Go to the registration page and sign up for your free account
2. Once you signup, you can instantly logon to your account, but you’ll have to activate your account before being able to do anything else. To do that, just click the confirmation link you’ll receive via email.
3. In your AT&T Locker account, go to Account Settings and access the area called My Plan.
4. Click Upgrade Plan and, in the page that opens, choose the free 50 Gb option
5. Press the Submit button to confirm the changes and that’s all – you just got your 50 GB of cloud storage for free from AT&T!
It would be great for you to post some feedback, because I had issues accessing the Locker in Maxthon, so I ended up using IE 10. Even this way, the website seems to be very slow, but I don’t think AT&T should be blamed for this, at least not yet – after all, I’m currently in Europe and, in the last few days, I noticed some problems with my connection, even when using European websites that used to work like a charm in the past. Oh, yeah, we should also mention that, at this time, AT&T doesn’t offer a standalone program for keeping your local data synced with the stuff in your locker. Nevertheless, the AT&T Locker seems like an awesome offer that’s worth checking out, so act now or feel sorry for missing it later!
