in case you use iOS: Box currently offer 50GB if you sign up to try their new iOS app http://www.latimes.com/business/technology/la-fi-tn-box-50-gb-free-cloud-storage-new-ios-app-20140115,0,2333280.story#axzz2qXlIdzTm Not sure what hook, line and sinker they attached... The NSA also offers a lot of storage to back up all you do and don't do ;)

Sorry.

10TB here if you don't mind it being in stored inChina

https://www.surdoc.com offers 100GB but has limit on "Special Files" these are files that you can't print or play. The limit being 5GB space and 10MB file size.

Mega.co.nz offers 50GB free and it's secure and 10GB bandwidfth no limit on file size.

Or if you've got a lot of friends then try Copy where I've got around 80GB and seen people with over 800GB (for free)
https://copy.com?r=oIFTvD
15GB Free + Extra 5GB for being referred (and extra 5GB for everyone you refer)
Also, if you're sharing files with friends/family/colleagues etc it'll share out how much space is used. So if I share 1GB of photos with 3 other people it only takes 250mb from each person.

Also Google, although Drive is only 15GB using Google Music you can store a ridiculous amount of music (20,000 songs) and also photos uploaded to G+ don't count towards storage if photos up to 2048x2048 pixels and videos up to 15 minutes.

Also, if Flickr offers 1TB for photo storage.

So, good to use a combo of services depending on what files you want to store.
Copy is my fave as it's from Barracuda Networks who have been offering enterprise Cloud Storage for years.

Also, if Flickr offers 1TB for photo storage. There's actually a trick to upload ANY file-type to flickr and hide it as a photo... ;)

Also: I asumed the OP wanted cloud storage that offers some sort of mobile app - seeing s/he posted it under "phones"

They all have mobile apps. Even flickr.
If you're going to be storing a good number of photos though why waste space at another service when Flickr has got you covered for 1TB of photos/video?

Personally
Google Drive I use to keep anything "printed" from Chrome and Office Documents.
Copy hosts any files I need to share.
G+ has all the photos I've ever taken (pretty much)
Flickr is my Family Photo Album
