Okay, after downloading the app and creating a new account this is the message I received: "As part of our 50 GB for 50 days promotion, you now have a free 50 GB Box account for storing and sharing all your files in the cloud." The wording of this message is not definitive, in my view, as I don't know if the 50 GB will be available for free beyond the promotion of 50 days. Though, it does state "you now have a free 50 GB Box account", this does not specially state it is for life and could be referring back to the previous phrase of "50 GB for 50 days promotion". I guess only time will tell if these new accounts will be a persistent lifetime of "free".

True! But the description in the page says "That’s right, it’s 50 GB in the cloud completely free, FOREVER." and "This promotion starts only runs for only 50 days". Maybe thats what he was trying to say in the message.

Does Box.net limit the file size upload?

Saw the answer to my question above, should really read replies more closely. With 100 MB filesize limit how would you ever fill 50 GB.

I agree. How would you ever put on movies and stuff like it says? No movie is 100 MB.

Their site keeps going up/down. I grabbed this from their site but the page won't fully load: As evidenced by the overwhelming crowds during past iPhone and iPad launches, it’s clear that our lives revolve around mobile. That’s why we’re happy to announce that we’re giving away 50 GB of free storage to anyone who uses a Box Personal account on an iOS device. That’s right, it’s 50 GB in the cloud completely free, forever. Your 50 GB of storage isn’t just limited to your mobile device – you get it anywhere you use your Box account, like on your laptop at home or your desktop at the office. We also updated our app with a few features that’ll make your free 50 GB even more powerful. Using AirPlay, you can now wirelessly stream Box content to an Apple TV for effortless projection of photos, videos, presentations and more. Of course, Box gets even better when you use it with others, so be sure to tell your friends, colleagues, and really, anyone with an iOS device to take advantage of this offer before it’s over. When we originally launched our iPhone app three years ago, we suspected our users would get pretty pumped about sharing and collaborating from anywhere. In addition to the tremendous amount of interest we’ve seen with our own app, mobile adoption across the entire tech industry has been massive. For example, analysts estimate that over 100 million people will have iPads or iPhones by the end of this year; to put that figure in perspective, that’s larger than the entire population of France by a pretty huge margin – nearly 30 million. The future of mobile is about being free of storage restrictions and closed systems. With this offer, all iOS users will see the benefit of having all of their critical information available at their fingertips, from anywhere. And if you’re already using Box, I’m sure you won’t mind getting some extra room in the cloud. Be on the lookout for tips, contests and other info about your free 50 GB over the next 50 days. Welcome to the cloud!

Finally opened page but text only. You don't have to wait until 14th. Install app and register now and on 14th space will be bumped to 50 GB! Only thing is that they allow 100BM files only for uploads, I mean not bigger then 100MB. But its ok.
