    Yea we plan on keeping ours, both my wife and I use it and it's my wife's primary email. She didn't like the google sync as far as contacts and the other crap that google tried to do. I like how it works for me and we have a family plan because the kids are planning on paying for their own cell plans this summer when they start working at the end of the week.

    I never user my mobile me email account. I really only ever signed up for it for find my iPhone before Find my iPhone went free. I hope the iCloud thing will work with the Apple ID instead of being tied to a me.com address.

    Me, too, I have a Google Apps account. But, I also have a Mobile ME account. I think I'll stick with Mobile ME \ iCloud and thus get it free

    I'll even spend the $24.99 to get the 'other' features. Beats spending even more on Google Apps...

    I doubt we'll be spending the extra $ on the other features. My wife doesn't even update her apps or IOS so I end up doing it and all the music that we have on both our phones are from mp3's that we have in our collection. We rarely purchase any songs from iTunes. 98% of her music is old stuff that we've had for years and all of mine are from my older collection and what friends send me.

    From what they are saying, you will register your me.com address on iCloud once it is available. I am not sure that any change will be necessary, other than adopting a new icloud.com address.

    Nope your email will stay @me.com ... Will just port all your data over to iCloud. Here is what the upgrade placeholder looks like currently.

    Thank you for the information. Also, from the website:

    Summary
    What's happening to MobileMe?
    Effective June 6, 2011, if you had an active MobileMe account, your service has been automatically extended through June 30, 2012, at no additional charge. After this, the MobileMe service will no longer be available.

    What will happen to the content I have on MobileMe?
    Apple has announced a new service called iCloud which will be available this fall and free for iOS 5 and OS X Lion users. When you sign up for iCloud, you'll be able to keep your me.com or mac.com email address and move your MobileMe mail, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks to the new service.

    When iCloud becomes available this fall, more details and instructions will be provided on how to make the move.

    I love mobileme and everything about. It is my primary email. iCloud is even better as well as being free. I feel like it stores everything I store in iDisk anyways. I don't use iWeb although that doesn't mean I wouldn't like to in the future.

    You will be able to keep the email and most of the features. I'm sure we'll hear more details as it gets closer like pricing for more storage.

    I'm going to roll the address forward to iCloud and close the MobileMe account.

    I don't think it will be available until later this year, based on the email from Apple.

    At what point am I going to be able to get a me.com ema address? Will Icloud work with gmail? Any ideas? Thanks!

    As far as syncing contacts, calendars, and email: no icloud will not work with gmail. That will work independently with gmail. but all the other features like music storage, photo roll, documents, etc work with your apple ID, which can be any email. I don't know if they've explicitly said this, but it seems like the most logical explanation with the way things have worked in the past.

    Actually, you can still get an @me.com email address through iCloud, so it's not completely dead!
