Re: March 2019 device limit policy

@ЗдравкоTheir webpage doesn't give that information up-front sadly and lists only lifetime and yearly.

@KlausB, Sorry for incompleteness in my previous post. You are partially right. Initially - only yearly and 'lifetime' prices are shown (don't ask me way). Below is a question - 'Do You want to see something more?' or something like. Next to this question are 2 pseudo links (javascript functions in fact) and one of them enable show of monthly pricing.

Hope this helps!

There is no way in hell, heaven or earth that I'm going to pay you $10/month just to add an extra device ... for a service that doesn't even offer client side encryption and to a company that has been proven to snoop on customer data and provide the govt acces to it without a legal warrant (Snowden), and also who keeps data even if "deleted permanently" from the web interface (I have the email exchange to prove it).

Add a $1/month plan if you want more users.

Farewell from me. I can't believe I'm saying this but even Google is a better alternative now.

Why is there still a discussion on this? Dropbox made this change for whatever reason, so get over it. They don't need nor want marketing advice from anyone on this forum.

That said, there is a simple remedy for the device limit. Upgrade, add your device(s), and then cancel the upgrade and go back to the free plan. You'll continue to have all of the storage and devices you previously had plus the devices you added. Easy peasy.

Umm... You're still posting. Get over it. People want to vent, let them vent. Are you in Dropbox marketing? You have some psychic connection to them and know this? 

Most change happens when enough customers complain. Or you can just be complacent and silent. Because that always gets you somewhere in life. 🙄

My reply provided a simple solution, which apparently you ignored. That's why I'm still posting.

Do you really think at this point Dropbox is going to change their policy based on a few hundred posts in this forum? You don't need a "psychic connection" to figure that out.

It all starts somewhere. New people come across this thread every day and post, so it just keeps going. As with any forum, the people here are the minority. For every one that posts, there are probably a few that have encountered the issue and moved on to a different service. To think only the people posting here are the only ones upset, complaining and what not, you're most likely very wrong. Not to mention how many just send an email, get a crap answer and move on. 

The problem is, it's tough to even calculate. No way for Dropbox to know how many free users are now paying for service elsewhere, so there's no real way to track lost business. They could notice a decrease in syncing among those accounts because most will just let things sync until they move on to a new device that won't sync. I'm using Box now, and I also have 100gb plus at a few other services. So my new devices sync with box. My dropsync is still active on my current devices though, so the current folders will still sync. But since I moved my Dropbox folder on my computer to a boxsync folder, there is less sync traffic with DB.

Would be nice to see how many free users went to paid or now have a decreased amount of syncing with DB. Then you could see if it would be financially worth it to offer a 200gb $36-40/yr offering. Would imagine most people with the device # issue wouldn't think twice about signing up for it.

For the ones that upgraded temporarily to be able to add additional devices and then cancel the subscription, can you verify that you get to keep your additional space previously earned thru referrals after downgrading to free?

Everything you've earned through referals  and bonuses is always yours. After promos and upgrades end you always go back to that base amount.
