    I'd like to know what are the best Cloud services available and running. Do any of you use a cloud service with you BlackBerry? Is there a recommended one? Dropbox, sugarsync, or Amazon.....as a Amazon prime member I'm leaning toward that but are there others I should consider and for what reasons? I know Amazon offers the most space for the lowest price, but is there something I'm missing?

    I personally use Dropbox its free and can accumulate a great amount of space by just pure referrals

    No question is a stupid question. We are all curious about something, better ask and get some response then ask and never know an answer.

    You can get the dropbox app on your blackberry. However dropbox requires you download the file onto the device before it opens it, So if you're not on wifi it won't allow you to download certain files as Blackberry has a download cap of 2MB

    What? I download 20-30mb podcasts all the time, why would Dropbox be different?

    Yeah, I've never seen this limitation either. I've upgraded a 3MB over GPRS/EDGE as well as 3G

    as with any cloud service, just be careful not to accidentally drop in something with personal and confidential info. Once you do, you have no idea how many places in the cloud your data has gone......

    Dropbox is the best, but sugarsync starts you out with more free space. Dropbox is more intuitive and eaiser to use, and as someone said you can earn more free space, and the price of additional space is reasonable.

    I don't keep anything of REAL value on it, mostly just media I want to share among my many computers and devices. And if folks want to steal my media, God bless them, they can enjoy, my pictures and movies and music too.

    Is the Amazon MP3 player used just for music files or does it let you upload/download other files like Dropbox?
