Box 10mb upgrade
Am I right in thinking that we were supposed to get an upgrade to 10mb when you sign up to box as an early adopter? If so I never got mine and I don't know how to raise it to them.

You can trash that account and register for a new one without loosing your email address, better yet, get 50GB instead of 10GB, this is how I did it:
Login to your Box.com account and click on the cog on the top right corner and click on "Account Settings"
2- On the middle of the page you will see your email address under "Login Information", click on "Add more emails"
3- Go to 10minutemail.com (disposable 10 min email address) and copy the address assigned to you.
4- Paste the address on the box.com page, in the field for the new address and click on "save"
5- Refresh the 10minutemail until you see the confirmation email, open it and click on the link to confirm.
6- Go back to Box.com "Account Settings" page, hover over the newly added email address and click on "Make Primary"
7- Hover over your real email address and click on "Remove"
8- Log Off and forget about that account!
9- Go to this promo link from Dell and sign up for 50GB using your now available real email address (thanks to CJH_ for this link): https://www.box.com/signup/o/dell_50gb_give_get
10- Reconfigure your Box.com app in your Z10 and enjoy your free 50GB !!!!!
Edit: If you have important data on that account, make sure you have a local copy of that data and delete all the data from the account before logging off, after you have made the change on the primary email address (between 7 and 8).

When I signed up for the 50 GB free account .... I noticed the following in the Account Setting page ...
Account type: Personal
Storage (used/total): 11.5MB / 50.0GB 0% used
Bandwidth used: 0B of 10.0GB
Any idea what they mean by "Bandwidth used: 0B of 10.0GB"? Thanks

So I'm guessing you can't just blast the account to the gills with the first 50GB of data 5 minutes after you open the account. Well, if you had a connection that fast..
(Could just be download traffic though. "Free" file hosting providers don't seem to mind you getting all your stuff onto their network - the more you keep there the harder it is for you to leave..)Data expands to fill all available space. Traffic increases to use all available bandwidth.
