Dropbox Doubles Referral Bonus and Plans to Pull the 23GB of Free Space from HTC Hack Users

You want the good news or the bad news first? OK, bad news? If you were one of the many people to use the ’23GB of free storage’ hack meant only for new HTC devices, well, Dropbox intends to take that back. It appears DB is much smarter than the hack’s developer had thought because DB knows the international HTC One series phones aren’t released until tomorrow. That means if you accessed this round-about way for obtaining free space they know it wasn’t completed in a legitimate and qualifying manner. Here is what Dropbox support had to say about the matter in their forums:

The official Dropbox 23GB HTC promotion will not start until sometime early this month, when the devices are released. To earn the extra 23GB of extra Dropbox space you will need to link your HTC Sense 4.0 device to your Dropbox account and complete “Get Started.”

The method to earn 23GB that is being circulated on the XDA Developers forum and on other blogs and forums is illegitimate. We plan to remove any space received using this method.

So bummer news for those of you who were hoping for a total of 25GB’s for free for two years. It will be removed and may have actually been done already. You may want to check on that… OK, on to the good news!

The good news is that Dropbox has doubled the referral bonus from 250MB to 500MB at a maximum of 16GB in incentives. For those of you who are paid users you will be pleased to know that your referrals have doubled to 1GB per referral at a max of 32GB of additional space. Oh yeah, this is retro active too, so be on the lookout for a little bump in space if you have any referrals under your belt.
