Get a 10GB Box Account + #BoxSync FREE on Your iPhone or iPad


If you already have a shiny new iPhone 5 in your hands, you’ve probably started installing your favorite apps – and discovering new ones, too. Even if you haven’t received your new iPhone 5 (we sympathize) or decided not to upgrade just yet, we have a new offer this week we think you’re going to love.

For the next month, we’re giving away a 10GB account and Box Sync completely free to anyone with an iOS device. Whether you have an iPhone 5, iPad or older iPhone, you’ll be eligible for this promotion. More awesomeness: Both new and existing Box users can take advantage of this offer! We think this will go a long way in giving you an easy, simple and secure way to share and sync your most important files. Now all your critical content will be right at your fingertips, no matter where you are. 

How to Claim Your 10GB Plus Box Sync

1. Visit the App Store and download Box for iPhone or iPad – as long as you use one of these devices, you’ll get the offer! If you already have our iOS app, you can simply log in to claim your 10GB account and Box Sync

2. Log into your account or create a new one right in the app

3. You’ll get a 10GB account right away, and Box Sync will be activated in your account within 48 hours

3. Once you get your activation email, start sharing and syncing your content to your heart’s content

4. Tell your friends, coworkers and family members about this offer with the hashtag #BoxSync

Remember, the 10GB account and Box Sync are yours for life, so you’ll never have to worry about your content being out of reach ever again. This update also makes our app completely compatible with iOS 6. Now you can share and manage your content using the big, beautiful display on the iPhone 5.

Not on iOS, or not a mobile user? Not to worry – you can still sign up for the Box Sync waitlist and we’ll activate Box Sync in your account as soon as we can. This offer ends on December 31, 2012 at 11:59pm, PST, so download the app today. Don’t miss out on getting 10GB and Box Sync free for life!

      • cadkins

        If I already have more than 5 gb am I eligible for the 10 gb offer? I have logged in with mi iPhone but didn’t see anything showing the additional space. Thanks.

        • Mark Saldana

          Hey Cadkins,

          If you already have 10GB or more, you won’t receive more space, unfortunately. You can, hoever, get sync through this offer if you don’t already have it. Let us know if you have any other questions.

          • cadkins

            I picked up the sync a week or so ago and I am now seriously considering Dropboxing the other guy :) Thanks.

          • mromar@mail.com

            This is so unfair.. on so many levels. I have the 50GB account.

  • Cadkins5

    If I already have more than 5 gb am I eligible for the 10 gb offer? I have logged in with mi iPhone but didn’t see anything showing the additional space. Thanks.

      • cadkins

        • Mark Saldana

          Hi Cadkins,

          Please see my reply above.

  • Tate

    I just logged in and no news..sad.

  • http://www.facebook.com/tony.crols Tony Crols

    Tried it on my iPhone and iPad, but I didn’t receive the extra 5GB?
    I logged out and logged in -> nothing changed
    I reinstalled the app -> nothing changed

    Please advice?!

    • Mark Saldana

      Hi Tony,

      How much space do you have now? If you already have 10GB or more, you wont get more space through this offer. Apologies for any confusion!

      • listudying

        But can get the BoxSync if have more than 10GB already?

  • Paul

    Installed it, but it won’t let me log in on the app, that’s that about?

    • paul

  • Francisco Gómez Llorca

    For the android users… don’t you think we deserve the same? :)

    • Mark Saldana

      Hi Francisco,

      We had an Android 50GB promo earlier this year, and plan on having more in the future. We love you guys, too!

      • Francisco Gómez Llorca

      Log out of your Box account and then log back into it on your iOS device and you should see the bump from 5GB to 10GB

  • Joshua Lollar

    I have the 50gig from being an early adopter, so I know I wont get a boost in storage. But I have not gotten my Box Sync enabled after logging into my iphone with the App. :(

    • http://www.facebook.com/AlexisShemale Alexis Andrews

      you have to log in on your computer and install the boxsync app…that is how i got mine…i think we should still get the extra 10 gb tho…since we are the best for being with them for this long..hehe

  • pmatsuda

    Logged in and out of the iPhone app a few days ago. Is there something that I have to do to enable BoxSync? Thanks

    • pmatsuda

      it’s active. is it only possible to sync folders on the Top Level of the hierarchy. I’d like to be able to just sync subfolders. thanks.

    • Shirl

      Meant to say it recognized both devices, my iPad and iPhone!! The upgrade hit my account IMMEDIATELY upon sign in on each device and my files synced from my iPad to my iPhone automatically and super FAST!! Love it. Thanks again for the promotion!!

  • http://profiles.google.com/sjmvideo Steven Morris

    I downloaded the iPhone app, created an account from my Mac. Logged in through the web and my iPhone and I still only have 5GB of storage. What did I do wrong?

    • yo

      you have to sign up from your iphone not on your mac

    • Benjamin Munk

      Login a couple of times on your PC first, then your iPhone. That’s what it took for me to get it working. Hope this helps.

  • Taylor

    I already have 50GB, can I get this 10GB offer?

  • Zul Yusof

    It seems that there is no Box app in WindowsPhone marketplace for Malaysia market. Pls advice. Note: There is Box app for Apple’s iPhone/iPad for Malaysia.

  • Marie

    is the app very heavy? it’s taking for ever to download!

  • Chris

    it works great on my mac, absolutely cool!!!! can I also use it on my win server 2003?

  • kittyyy

  • Justin

    Hi,how can I know if my Box Sync is activated after 48 hours?

  • http://www.facebook.com/neil.feldscher.3 Neil Feldscher

    If I am downgrading from a paid account (25 GB) and my downgrade doesn’t take affect until November 1 can I still get the offer?

  • tahenry

    I signed in and still no 10 extra gigs. Any help will be appreciated.

  • Frank

    By Log-Out, do you mean unlink dropbox on this [device?] I do not see a way to log-out–only to unlink.

  • Louis

    There is still no App. for “Android” is it?

  • travis

    I think I’ve done everything. How do I know whether or not I have the 10gb?

  • yahia

  • tyokoyama@gmail.com

    I love BOX

  • Derrick Vermont

    How long does it take to get the 10GB added? I downloaded the app and logged in and it still says only 25.0GB

  • dannyg

    I signed up but because of the offer on your web site but the account only has 5gb ?

    • dannyg

  • Stephanie Ong

  • Liesse Ivan (thuis)

    Bad to say it doesn’t work. I logged in on my 50 gb account (promo) and still no sync (or email). Tried it also with an other mailadres (new account) and that worked in 5 minutes.

  • ThatWeirdo

    I created my account 2 hours before the offer ended an did not get the extra space, can you do anything to fix it?

  • Brenda

    Downloaded the app on january 1st and reloaded it today wondering why i only recieved 5 gb storage. I find it misleading the promotion is still offered in the AppStore while in fact it ended two days ago. Shame i missed out

  • Brenda—
