I would LOVE to use MobileMe, but it just doesn't seem to work without some sort of third party intervention.
Since my "Main Brain" (Calendar, Contacts) is on a corporate Windows computer using Outlook on an Exchange server MobileMe has treated it like kryptonite and curled into a fetal position of uselessness.

Ok, you ALL peaked my curiosity again about the wonders of MoMe so I signed up for a 2 month trial to see if I still have email issues. So far so good BUT something is off with my syncing. All my existing data transferred easily to the Iphone, Imac, and Macbook so I did a test with a new calendar item and no go. It is not pushing between the 3. Do I need to do a reset on both computers under the MoMe settings?

Most of the time my syncing occurs within seconds..sometimes it will take a few minutes though.
BTW.... shouldn't it be "Tx-dawgs"

This way my Emails/Contacts/Calender is push to my iPhone as soon as it hits MoMe. What eats up my battery is 3G and BT. If I use Edge and WiFi my battery life is much much better. That being said I leave mine on 3G most of the time. I just keep a charger in the Truck with me.

I'm a Windows, Outlook, iPhone user with MobileMe. The functionality is great, and very seamless.
However, it has one really ugly problem - if my laptop happens to change IP addresses (which it does at least twice a day as I move between my work office and home), MobileMe always looses it's association, and disables itself. I then have to go and reconfigure it, and resync it. Then it's good again, until my IP address changes. That implementation is really lame.
Great product though.

I will renew my MobileMe because it works so well with my exisitng Apple toys.
But I would like to add that it is a tad expensive....
When I purchased initially I got a discount because of the "Employee Purchase Program" through my work. However the discount is not there at point of renewal.
In comparison to the US we do (as always) have to pay more for the same services overhere in the UK. Which considering I only personally benefit from Push Email it is expensive. But hey ho, I love my .mac or .me email addy and renewl is around Xmas so I just treat myself.

Alongside the "Notebook" and "Toodledo" apps, it's vital that I also have the ability to sync calendars and contacts, so yes, I will renew my MobileMe subscription. As a former Palm user, I take PIMs (and the ability to sync wirelessly) pretty seriously. :-)
I have to sync my iphone to my Macbook and my PC Dell laptop - I've been so spoiled with MoMe, I'm not sure I could go back to life without it!
IMO, $99 a year is a pretty damn good deal for all you get. But again, that's just me.
The "cloud" and the ability to sync to it is the wave of the future. I almost think you *have* to have something like it on a smartphone, but that's just my opinion.
Sorry, I'm rushing to get to work, so I'm rushing this response,

I will be keeping mine for sure! At the minimum, with mM you are able to have contacts, calendars, and bookmarks in sync everywhere and that = no more docking!
mM is a must even for pc users. If you don't like it, then you probably don't have it set or or utilize it to it's full potential.

I'm really liking this whole syncing all my computers, being able to do printer sharing, photos, the storage space to where people can just see my public drive if i need to get them files, wow...I just started my 60 day trial, I'd be stupid not to take the 2 free months, but after that I definitely think I'll be buying a year subscription.

Keeping mine, love it. I wish the UI online at me.com was a little more stable per say such as google's gmail online.
When I go to add a contact me.com refreshes cancelling all I've done, I would then have to do it again to take.
