    Want Icloud but only getting MobileMe
    Just got a new Iphone and want Icloud on my Mac but under settings the only option I get is Mobile Me, which is being discontinued.
    Do I need Icloud on my Macbook as well as my Iphone? If so how do I get it?
    thanks so much

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    Not sure where to look on iPhone as i havnt got one, but on your Mac if your running Lion then hit the  top left System Preferences>Internet Wireless>iCloud and you can manage it there.
    Also goto iCloud.com and set it up there as well.

    HTH

    Cheers

    Guess I'm not running Lion, does that mean I can't get Icloud?

    Well it would help enormously if you provided operating system details ~ pretty hard to guess.

    If you are not running Lion, hopefully it is Snow Leopard OS X.6. It is reported a new Software Update to version OS X.6.9 will enable iCloud for SL users.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    That is correct. iCloud is limited, on the Mac, to those of us using Lion. Full system requirements here.
