    Hey everybody,

    This a short review of my experience with Apple's Mobile Me service.

    First off you can do a 60 day free trial, but once the trial expired you automatically get charged $99 for the 1-year subscrition. I'm still in my trial.

    Push email- Mobile Me push email has been pretty great for me so far. I tested it from sending an email to myself from my Gmail account and I received my email on my iPhone in about 5 seconds. It's pretty fast. Everything is always in sync with your email account on Mobile Me, meaning that if you move mail to a certain folder called "Personal", within seconds it is in the personal folder on your Mobile Me account on your computer. One thing I need to comment on is that sometimes my iPhone cannot contact the 'stmp.me.com' server, I'll experienced this error once since I got my Mobile Me account set up on my iPhone.
    Oh yeah, I get email faster on my Mobile Me account than I did on my BlackBerry!!

    Push Calender - The push calender feature is pushed to your iPhone just as fast as email. The only thing I don't like about it is that adding events on your Mobile Me account from your computer can be a pain (the interface is sluggish and sometimes not responsive). Just like email , if you create an event on your iPhone, it will be pushed to the server and it will then show up on your Mobile Me account on your computer.

    Push Contacts- Mobile Me push contacts is always in sync, just like the rest of Mobile Me features. It's really handy to have the same contacts on your iPhone as you do on your Mobile Me account for your computer. Sometimes syncing contacts takes about 30+ seconds to change on your iPhone or account.

    I've only had Mobile Me since 8/5/08, I have not really experience the whole thing yet, but as I do I will update my review.

    If anyone else has a Mobile Me account, please add your input :)

    Have a great evening,
    Alien.

    Thanks for the Mobile Me post. I opted not to try it, figuring that I would get hooked.

    Good to hear from someone who is learning the ins and outs. Will you keep it?

    Thanks! Yes I plan on keeping it. Although mobile me was down for a little bit today.
