It's almost hard to believe just how fast the "cloud" has become a part of everyday life. Internet access is become such a norm when it comes to mobile users, that even operators are getting in on the fun. Verizon Wireless has just announced a Cloud product of its own, with a roll-out to begin for phones and tablets in the coming weeks. The secure storage app gives customers a place to back up and access their information. Additionally, as customers use multiple devices, sometimes running on different operating systems, Verizon Cloud will allow for the transferring of some content between Android and iOS devices, making it accessible across smartphones, tablets and computers.

Whether customers are looking to save text messages, call logs, contacts, music, multimedia or other files, Verizon Cloud allows for up to 125 GB of storage. Verizon Cloud will initially be available for Android, with iOS devices following soon. Additional operating systems are expected to be supported later this year. Customers utilizing Verizon Cloud will receive 500 MB of storage at no monthly charge, with additional storage coming at a cost.

This is certainly good news for customers, but it's also a smart move for VZW: if they hook you into their cloud ecosystem, it's easier to continue relying on Verizon for each phone upgrade.

I think Verizon has had this service for a while now. I have never used it though, as it was limited to only 500 MB. For what they charge, you would think it would be at least a couple of gigs for free. I guess it could be a smart move for Verizon, but as for customers like me, eh. I don't want to give them any more of my money then I have to.

verizon your services are bad and you should feel bad too!!! ill tell you what though this is a first. An app made for android first and not ios?? ios is the one waiting?? i will give them props. But i prefer mybackup pro(for non rooted users) or titanium backup(for rooted users) and have all that data stored locally. This would come in handy for changing operating systems though.

I don't think this would count as being stuck in a Verizon cloud ecosystem, who would actually deactivate their icloud or droid clouds (don't know what they are called) to solely use Verizons? I see this as more of a redundancy in case 1 messes up you still have a backup. What I personally would use this for is backing up any of the "extra" junk that I either don't want on my icloud or don't want wasting storage on my icloud and would backup things I wouldn't care to lose and that includes if I have to switch to a different carrier.
