    Do you think MobileMe is going to be free then?
    Hey everyone,

    I've read a lot of rumours about the possibility of MobileMe becoming free sometime this year and I wondered what you guys thought about this. Do you think it will happen? I'm just coming to the end of my first year as a MobileMe customer but I can't really 'hold back' and wait for it to be free as my @me.com email address is important to me. Needless to say, it looks like I'll be paying another 59 in a few weeks.

    I remember reading that Apple said 2011 will be a big year for MobileMe but so far I've heard nothing.

    Have a great day everyone and enjoy the rest of the weekend

    The rumor of it going free pops up on and off over the last many years. We won't know until they actually do it.

    IMO I think there will be a standard free option, but I think there will also be a paid version available offering more than what you get in their free package. Like Dropbox but better?

    As I recall, that comment was made in the context of an email someone claimed to receive from Jobs. As much as I admire him for occasionally responding to customers, I always take anything I read from those reports with a grain of salt.

    Not sure what the point would be. It's not like they're going to make a major product announcement by way of an email to a customer.

    Not to mention, Apple has claimed a "big year" for MobileMe quite a few times over the last decade. So I don't hold out much hope until they actually announce something.

    I reckon there is something in the rumours. Integrated iOS come 10.7 Lion and the iPhone5 all with access to MobileMe. I read somewhere that when they bring out the iP5 there could be a free subscription to MM and then with lion, "the cloud in the sky" will be able to sync every device you own. Well im hoping so.
    I remembered this bc this would be a definite in getting the iP5

    Can only hope

    Cheers
