For Verizon and AT&T Galaxy S3 phones, this helps with the lacking free Dropbox.
If you are the proud owner of a T-Mobile or Sprint Galaxy S3, the reports of SugarSync being included with the phone probably do not mean much to you. That is because those US wireless carriers have chosen to provide the free 50 GB Dropbox storage for 2 years as part of the sale of the Galaxy S3 to consumers. And that makes it another incentive to purchase the Galaxy S3 from those carriers. But what if you prefer to use either AT&T or Verizon as your wireless carrier for the Galaxy S3? They chose to not participate in the Dropbox program, denying their Galaxy S3 customers the free cloud storage.
It would appear that another solution is needed to this and that is exactly what Samsung has done. Samsung has come up with a solution for this by providing SugarSync on their Galaxy S3 phones so that Verizon and AT&T owners do not feel left out. In a Press Release today, they are announcing the inclusion of SugarSync with all new Samsung mobile devices. This will be included on any Samsung mobile device which has the AllShare Play services included. And that includes the Galaxy S3 which has been promoting the AllShare picture sharing in TV ads.
Unfortunately, if you were expecting to get 50 GB of free storage, that is not the case. What you will see if the ability to sign up for SugarSync services and get the free 5 GB of of cloud storage. This is the same space which anyone can get by signing up for their services. It is unfortunate that they are not offering far more for Verizon and AT&T customers who have missed out on the free Dropbox storage offer. Verizon and AT&T have found a way to irritate customers of the new Galaxy S3 smart phone before they have even purchased it.
Samsung has taken the SugarSync relationship even further by including it on all new Samsung mobile devices. With SugarSync, you can share your cloud storage across all Samsung devices, including new Samsung TV’s which use the AllShare Play services. The cloud storage will provide for the AllShare Play to show your pictures from your Galaxy S3 phone to your Samsung TV. Technology continues to involve as the cloud becomes part of our everyday life.
For those of us who are AT&T or Verizon customers with the Galaxy S3, it would appear we are on our own to get higher levels of storage which are being offered for free to T-Mobile and Sprint Galaxy S3 customers.
