Glitch blocking AT&T HTC One M8 owners from redeeming free 50GB of Google Drive storage


HTC’s Advantage program offers screen replacement, a software update guarantee and 50GB of Google Drive storage. Actually, there’s a problem with that last one. At least for AT&T customers who own the HTC One M8. Recently, the Taiwanese manufacturer posted a status update on its Advantage website stating that there’s a technical issue blocking Ma Bell’s customers from redeeming their Drive storage. 

Dear HTC Customers and Enthusiasts, A minor technical error has temporarily deactivated the Google Drive cloud storage offer for the AT&T HTC One (M8). Please be aware that we are working to fix this error, and the 50GB of Google Drive storage space will be available by Mid-May for this device. Thank you for your patience, and we hope you are enjoying your new HTC One (M8). Sincerely, Ed Kuhner Vice President Customer Experience

HTC didn’t provide any further details on this matter, but by saying it’s working to resolve the problem suggests that it could be an in-house issue. The company claims that things should be resolved in the next few weeks.
