    A few things to keep in mind:

    Personal accounts are restricted to.
    1. No Desktop Sync unless you upgrade
    2. 100MB upload limit (2GB if you upgrade)
    Overall, from a business aspect box is really cool! Personal aspect... not so much. Which baffles me as to why they're working with companies like HP, HTC, LG, and Sony on giving people free access. Their plans and operation are really geared toward business use, and not so much personal.

    Still didn't stop me from grabbing free 50GB!

    Why exactly does this app need access to my personal contact info? Thanks, no.

    Doesn't hurt to read app descriptions. They some times mention why they require an odd permission. Of course, weather you want to believe this or not is up to you. From the app description page:
