MobileMe Users to Get 25GB of Storage Till June 2012
MobileMe users have languished in uncertainty about what would happen to the 20GB of base storage they paid when iCloud finally goes live and the subsequent discontinuing of MobileMe in June of 2012.
Apple has finally broken the silence. Apple will automatically sign up MobileMe users to the 20GB (+5GB free) iCloud plan at no charge (normally $40/year). Automatically signing MobileMe users up to this tier for free covers the 20GB of storage Me users paid for with a years subscription to MobileMe.
Also, users will be automatically signed up for recurring billing set to start on June 30, 2012, the same day that MobileMe will be shut down. Users will be billed for the current $40/year tier they received for free during the previous period. It still isn't clear how fast users will burn through storage space utilizing iCloud's services, but MobileMe users wont be complaining of the extra 20GB of space they've been given. Even though they already paid for it.

I'm disappointed that Preferences and Keychains will no longer be synced. I find it really handy to have both synced across my MBP and the house iMac.

I am so confused. How is Apple "giving" something to anybody? Aren;t they just giving you your 20 gigs of service that you already paid for plus the 5 gigs of free space that every Apple device owner is now given?

haha I love how people are like "ohhh cool Thanks Crapple for hooking me up" but in reality they are just baiting you in so that you get comfortable having that extra storage space then when your FREE time is up it you're gonna have to PAY to keep all that extra space that you have become accustomed to

Hi there everyone,
I created a free @me.com address with an IOS 5 beta 2 weeks ago and have been enjoying it ever since ... However I can't seem to sync my Contacts and iCal on my MBP Lion ...
I can access all of them from www.icloud.com but I just can seem to be able to sync it with my laptop ...
I checked around online and thought that I'd probably need to install the new iCloud Beta 6 directly on my MBP but since it means installing the 10.7.2 update for Lion as well (and also I don't have an apple dev account ) I'd rather try some other way ...
Thanks for adding your 2 cents ...

how does one opt out of the reacquiring $40 a year after its free? I am done paying for this service. Once the free part is up, I do not want to pay. Mobile me stole enough money from me and I do not wanted to get robbed anymore.
