Increase Hotmail size to 250 MB



Got thru mail..and really has upgraded to atleast 25MB
Quote:
Login ur hotmail account and go to options.


Go to "Personal"
Click "My Profile"
Change Country to "United States"
Wait for browser to load United States settings.
Change the state to any American States. For example "Florida" and zip code "33332"
Click "update"
Click "Continue"
Go to "Language" and make sure its "English"


Paste this link in the same browser.
http://by17fd.bay17.hotmail.msn.com/...n/Accountclose
Wait until the Screen says you're Hotmail is Closed and ready to be deleted.
Click "Close Account".
Go back to login page and re-login to ur hotmail account..!!

Your account size will now increase to 25 MB, which a month later becomes 250 mb.
Good Luck..!!

PS.It worked, however i guess the Florida thing is simply a diversion because new hotmail accounts are given 250 MB by default now. So the trick is to actually "de-activate and re-activate the account" only!

You won't lose your mails and address books, believe me..!!

Its Tried and tested !!!

my account is already 250 MB (almost a month now)

Change ur profile to this and see :

Quote:
Country/Region: United Kingdom

State/Territory: England

Postal Code: 123

Time Zone: Universal Time - GMT
There was another hack posted by an indian of Team S*D in August last year for hotmail 2GB but it involves illegal account nos. and I'm sure hotmail fixed that flaw.

Regards.

Dear bluediamond,

The trick I posted is not incorrect. Why shuld I fool around or post incorrect info? I'm moderator here and I always "think" before I post !
I'm not to be blamed for ur account not getting upgraded to 250MB. That only shows how "greedy" and "impatient" one is like me!

My account is 250 MB since almost a month. I have seen similar hack on s*d forums in "August 2004" and since then I have changed my profile region settings to UK and one day when I logged in my hotmail account I was surprised to see 250MB !!

This will definitely be an exciting news for freshers but definitely not for someone who already knows it since months ! Just like the Gmail craze or even the Windows 2000 Source code

U havent posted the source of this trick since as per the link posted by unix.blackhat the 250MB hotmail news is old which only further supports my side ! Or maybe I assume u got it from an illegal site(very low possibility)

If u still don't believe me then I will PM u the direct link to that hotmail 2GB hacking and yes don't try it since it's old now !

You see currently u can't even imagine that what a mess I'm in my personal life so I'm sorry if anywhere I'm rude since u r the female sex here

I won't be available for comment for maybe many days now since I have to tackle the disaster in my personal life

Good bye and I'll be back !

Best Regards.

Hey Chill Ferrari
Guess she just meant she wasted time jumping between the two methods, though both are pretty much the same. Both are working and have the same results : 25MB initial -> 250MB finally.

@bluediamond: They clearly state that you are given an initial 25MB account, and will gradually increase it to 250MB. When they do it, is upto them.. you can get lucky and get it increased promptly to 250MB like Mask did, but more often than not you will be given only 25MB like the most of us. I also assume, the more active you are with your account the sooner it gets done

Hi,
Rinku here,
I just register as a member and was happy to get instant benifit of knowing the trick to increase hotmail mailbox size to 250 MB.
For those who are a little suspicious about the account close thin. Believe us it really works without any problem.Just take care that you login immediately after you do the account close activity.
Regards,
Rinku

Hey I think it is just like the Yahoo stuff. Yahoo started giving 100MB and initially only available to US ie @yahoo.com address. And at that time there was tricks to increase your account size (for .co.in). And now every Yahoo account including .co.in is 250MB. I think hotmail will follow the suite soon for every one.

Dont worry guys if you have still not got 25MB or 250MB. Microsoft will make it that eventually for everyone. As a matter of fact a friend of mine in India is using his hotmail account for last 8-9 years. And his account size was increased to 250MB some 6 months ago.

In any case, all thanks goes to the Great Google. I rely a lot on it these days!!!

BTW My account size also got increased by using the trick - first 25MB, and after a week of so to 250MB.

DOnt copy-paste the link in the first post of this thread to Close ur hotmail account. Try "Copy Shortcut" (in IE) or "Copy Link Location" (in Firefox) and then paste it in the browser. That should solve your problem.
