AT&T is the latest to get into the cloud storage game. Via an App on Apple’s App Store, customers can get access to the AT&T locker.
It comes with 5 gigs of free storage, which AT&T says is enough to store up 5,000 average-sized photos.
“Customers use smartphones to capture special moments in their lives. That’s why we designed AT&T Locker to help you store those memories,” said Mark Collins, senior vice president, Data and Voice Products, AT&T Mobility. “With Easy Upload, every photo and video is uploaded directly to AT&T’s cloud, which can be accessed safely and securely anytime from a customer’s smartphone or the Web.”
May make upgrading iCloud storage a little harder with this free option.
Here are the details:
