Verizon Cloud offers up to 125GB of storage, first 500MB free
Back in 2010, Verizon started offering a basic cloud service as part of its VCast Media Manager. But with the smartphone landscape ever-changing, Verizon is now offering a new and improved service, simply called Verizon Cloud.

With the Verizon Cloud app installed on your smartphone, you can select which items to be backed-up on Verizon's remote server and if they should be synced automatically, such as text and picture messages, images and videos, call logs, contacts, music, or any saved file. You can access the Verizon Cloud service with any of your smartphones (as long as they are supported) or even with your PC.

You can start out with the basic 500MB of storage for free, but if you want more space you can step-up to 25GB for $2.99/month, 75GB for $5.99/month, or even 125GB for $9.99/month. Keep in mind that Dropbox is free for the first 2GB, with 100GB for $9.99/month and 200GB for $19.99/month, and Google Drive is free for 5GB, with 25GB for $2.49/month and 100GB for $4.99/month.

Smartphones that currently support the Verizon Cloud app include the Motorola DROID X and X2, Motorola DROID 2 Global, HTC Thunderbolt, HTC Incredible and Incredible 2, Samsung DROID Charge and Fascinate, while for tablets you can use it with the Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2" and 10.1", Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Tab 2 10.1, and Galaxy Note 10.1.

As you can see, most higher-end Verizon smartphones are missing from this list, such as the Samsung Galaxy S III and S4, Galaxy Note II, and Motorola DROID RAZR HD - though Verizon does say that more devices, including iOS support, will be added through the year.
