MobileMe Renewal Payments Being Refunded Before WWDC?
WWDC is less than two hours away, and reports are surfacing that MobileMe subscribers are having their automatic renewal payments refunded.
TUAW is reporting a reader, Steve M., had his checking account charged as usual for his automatic MobileMe renewal subscription. However, the charge was then immediately refunded back to his account. This comes after a number of users have cited changes in MobileMe's billing practices with their services being granted continuations past their given expiration dates.
All of this makes sense given the assumed change to Apple's cloud based services, and falls in line with rumors suggested by the Wall Street Journal back in February that MobileMe would see a pricing change or even become free.
Also, this seems to confirm reports earlier this week that suggested iCloud could be free at first as well. We'll all know in just a few hours. Stay tuned.
