    Point being, it will still expire after a year, so if you think you need the extra storage then why ponder whether to upgrade or not. Otherwise you could always set up another SkyDrive account and use that to test drive while you ponder to upgrade. Seriously, I don't see why this is such a big deal.

    Why is the 20gb so important anyway, it's only for a year and then it expires, it's like a friend lending you a 20gb hard drive that you'd temporarily or never put anything in it until the day he asks for it back again.
    I'd say the people which would like this already use SkyDrive between several devices, I do. Windows Phone/ 2 Laptops/ ASUS Transformer Tablet/ ASUS Tower.

    Its nice to be able to store and use files between all the devices.

    BTW to you even use cloud storage? I've used a couple others, was completely dissatisfied with one service and the other still trying out another beside SkyDrive.
    So far SkyDrive is winning with its simplicity and the ease to upload and download files.

    That is the reason we like a little more space, 7GB is not very much storage if you really use it continuously.

    How do set another free Skydrive account, serious question?

    You "don't see" because you're purposely refusing to. You're proposing a work around that isn't very convenient.

    SkyDrive is linked to your MS Account. I have several devices linked to that MS account.

    As it is right now, it's easy for me to log in anywhere on any of those devices and get my files. I don't have to log out and then log in to a different account. I don't have to open a web browser to get to a different account. It's all simple and easy.

    As for "why ponder"? Is that a serious question?

    Are you somehow implying that it is NOT good to be able to try out a service for a full year for free to determine if it's something that I'd like to upgrade to?

    Well there's that workaround for one who's desperate to get the free 20gb, really simple, just make another MS account, get skydrive link, then map it as a network drive in windows explorer. On your phone sign in using the skydrive app because the built in one is already using the primary account.

    I didn't say free trial is not good, it's good, just try not to act like a coupon queen or something.

    What are you even trying to say? What's your problem with people who look forward to promotions like this?

    What's a "coupon queen"? Is that a disparaging remark against people who use coupons?

    Is this your way of trying to elevate yourself above others?

    I posted as well really don't think we will get a answer, after spending all that time on the phone. Really can't believe they don't have a answer. H..mm must not be on their scripted page of answers.

    I STILL haven't gotten the email, but at this point I'm not stressing over it. It's only free for a year, after all. Meh to that.

    If its true that it's only for outlook and live users that's plain stupid I have my hotmail account for a very long time and I used my hotmail account when the Samsung Focus released and still using it on my Lumia 1520 and W8.1 accounts.

    We have no reply from any Windows Phone support, MicroSoft Support, nor SkyDrive support.

    I and others have contacted all 3, some by phone, some by email and support forums.

    The only thing they told me it was a computer system generated email and keep checking my email.

    Ha ha I think all of us knew that, and it was a promotional thing for Window Phone users.

    I thought I hadn't received the email all this time but it was in my Gmail account. My Microsoft account username is my old Gmail address, and while I was signing into my Microsoft account, which is linked to my outlook.com address, the email was actually sitting in the inbox over at Gmail.com.

    If any of you are using a separate email for the username of your Microsoft account, check that account. That's what I had to do. I didn't take the time to read the whole thread but I apologize if this has already been suggested.

    just goto windows live and create a new microsoft account, all microsoft accounts come now with 7 gigs free skydrive , for example, I have 4 microsoft accounts, 1 under an msn.com address, 1 under live,com address 1 under outlook.com address, and 1 under yahoo.com address, two of these came with 25 gigs free skydrive ( they used to give 25 gigs, but changed it to 7 gigs about a year ago ) i use each account for different reasons, but can access all of them from my phone

    Well, how long has this promotion been? I ask because I just got my email yesterday?! I have had this account for years and a windows phone even longer....

    Just be patient. You will get yours as I am certain this is a deployment rollout issue...

    It is a email with a green link in it... The link has a code to redeem attached to it.

    Though I don't need it, I was so happy that I vowed to use it. I am sitting on 245GB of skyDrive storage and only use 5... But this will change. I am even contemplating game saves like stream and other directories :)

    The 20 gig promo expired as of 12 midnight last night so keep copies of your sent emails for proof of register. I got mine pretty quick but didn't activate till last night, gotta squeeze the juice out of this freebie.

    Evidently, this nice promotional offer was just for some Window Phone users, because all did not receive it.

    They should stated in the beginning it would just be for some Window Phone users, instead of for Window Phone users. It seems many are not going to get it.

    really? I felt that way until I checked the Gmail account that I used for my Microsoft account. Logging into the Microsoft account did not yield the email but going to Gmail.com and signing into that inbox did... Change Gmail to your email provider of your Microsoft account address. Does that help? I'm not saying you are wrong, but that was my issue and I missed out for about 3 weeks until I realized they sent to the email address that was my username.
