I have the exact opposite experience. I used SyncInABlink for contacts and regular gmail for mail. It worked perfect and it even stored google groups as iPhone contact groups on the phone (google sync does Not do this).
Once I decided to try out Google sync, I lost contacts, many duplicates were created, and no groups were synced. Same happened with MobileMe. I won't be renewing it due to it's hefty price tag.
Once my MobileMe expires I'll be doing what I do now: SyncInABlink for contacts and GPush for gmail. It's way cheaper.

I LOVE the concept of MobileME, but the $99 price tag is quite steep for something that gmail does for free! Right now, I only have one email account set up on my iPhone and no work email/calendar account to worry about, if I had more than one, MobileME would be a good investment

I don't know. I like the concept, but I do think the pricetag is high, even if you get the find/nuke your iphone option. It does seem to sync calendar items better than GMail sync does. (I've always had issues with GMail Sync. The timezone stuff must play havoc because my appointments are always off by a few hours (and that's particularly annoying on the "all day" events).) I guess we'll see. I just started my trial last week.

Weird, because earlier this week, I had half Mobile ME (Find and Browser favourites) and Google Sycn installed. Seems to cause a few issues...
Yesterday, I reverted to JUST Mobile ME. But, not all my emails were being PUSH instantly like it use to. I removed everything, i.e. all accounts, and then re-added my Mobile ME. Thus far, all is well...

ill be honest i paid for mobileme because i wanted a good email address and with google having a ridiculous amount of users so i could not have the username i wanted where as mobile me i could
since then i have used it for about a year and now i don't think i could move to another email address i love mobile me
i have all my mac's synced more than worth the price tag

- 11-08-2009, 02:57 AM #43I just set io the google sync and the push mail works great. I'm going to cancel my MobileMe account before my free trial is over
I've only had a iphone for a few days, and I tried Mobile Me and it took ALL my google contacts - regardless of whether they were in my contacts area or not - and pushed them. So if google had created a contact automacally for someone and then later I created a separate contact for them - well the google one is still lingering in gmail. Mobile Me picked BOTH up. Google sync using Microsoft Exchange did not - it only picked up the items I had personally marked as contacts. Since I am on a PC and am using Picasa for my pic hosting and gmail for email... I'm thinking Mobile Me isn't a good fit for me. Good thread, is really helping me decide at a critical time.

MobileMe works great, but the Web Apps leave a little to be desired. If you access your email via the web frequently, MobileMe may not be the way to go. However, if you access it on a desktop client, I see little reason to not take the plunge to Apple's service.

Downfall of using the GMail exchange (push) for the iPhone it doesn't sync all your mail, and the "load more" doesn't show up. It only syncs 30 days worth of mail before you don't see it on the phone anymore ( even though it's on the server ). Google has said they are looking into this, but who knows if anything will be done about it or how long it will take.
