AT&T Locker

AT&T Locker is a service not unlike the offerings from Dropbox and Google Drive, and it has actually been available for some time on Android. The app has just been updated in the Play Store to add features, and has also launched on iOS today as well. AT&T is really pushing this cloud storage service as a way to store and share media like pictures and videos, but it will work just fine with any other types of files as well. You can manage files via the Android and iOS apps, or on the web. AT&T is positioning the service as not just a storage center but as an easy portal to share the media out to other services like social media sites and via e-mail.

As is par for the course, you'll get 5GB of free storage, and decent pricing options if you need more -- 30GB for $3.99 and 100GB for $9.99 monthly. If you're interested in giving the AT&T Locker app a look, you can find it at the Play Store link above. We've also added the full press release for you after the break.

The only way I'd EVER use this is if it didn't go against my data allotment. Almost seems like "double dipping" to charge for the service then charge again for accessing it.
Also explains why they never offered the Dropbox promotions.

Pass

+100

I could see this really taking off *IF* the carriers didn't ding you for the data usage from their own friggin servers. That would be a sweet deal.

terrycanfly says:

That's what i was thinking too

icebike says:

This.

These guys are the last bunch I would trust with my data. These guys installed a back door directly to the NSA long before it was legal.

willmsbrg says:

Not compatible on my note running Paranoid Android 2.52.

icebike says:

I wager that if you wait a week or two those guys at Estrong will come up with an interface to this facility just like all the other cloud storage offerings, and then you won't need the AT&T client.

Saneless says:

AT&T: We hate that you use our cellular data! We've limited it AND we try to force you to use WIFI as much as possible. But here's a new service that guarantees you use more cell data!

I just don't get it. The biggest problem, data usage aside, is what's the point of a carrier-proprietary service that doesn't seem to be any better than the free competition? Google and Dropbox are better, carrier and device independent, AND probably have better apps and desktop support. That's before you even consider other apps that will save/retrieve from DB/GD.

Mobius360 says:

Gotta love carrier bloatware.

aapold says:

And this is why AT&T denied AT&T HTC One X users their 25 GB of free dropbox storage (I see someone else mentioned it).

I know some got it but I tried just about everything short of flashing to an international version and no dice, nothing other than AT&T has opted out of this deal...

l00natic71 says:

The other options seem better. Looks like this is limited to ATT. So, if you leave ATT, you will need to download all your data and upload to something else. With dopbox and other options, it follows you.. much better option, I think.
