As part of HTC Advantage, the Taiwanese manufacturer’s ‘benefits package’ offered to customers who have recently purchased one of their new handsets, HTC was offering 50GB of free Google Drive storage. A generous amount of cloud storage for sure, but one that currently excludes AT&T branded One M8s. Why? Well, we can’t be exactly sure what the problem is. HTC is calling it a “minor technical error” but hopes to have the promotion up and running by mid-May.
Dear HTC Customers and Enthusiasts,
A minor technical error has temporarily deactivated the Google Drive cloud storage offer for the AT&T HTC One (M8). Please be aware that we are working to fix this error, and the 50GB of Google Drive storage space will be available by Mid-May for this device.
Thank you for your patience, and we hope you are enjoying your new HTC One (M8).
Vice President Customer Experience
Still unclear is if AT&T One M8 owners who are already using Drive will need to do any additional steps to activate the promo, or if everything will be handled behind the scenes. We’ll keep you posted.
