  • Select Samsung devices are eligible to receive 48 GB for two years, including:
    • Devices launched after Fall 2014 with the Dropbox app pre-loaded
    • Devices launched between 2012 and 2014 that have the Dropbox app pre-loaded with the "out-of-box" experience
  • Select Samsung devices launched between 2012 and 2014 that have the Dropbox app pre-loaded but do not have the "out-of-box experience" are eligible to receive 48 GB for one year.
  • AT&T devices: Note 4 devices with an AT&T carrier are eligible to receive 48 GB for six months.
