Can you sync contacts and calendar with a mobileme trial account. I'm trying to sync on my macbook and I get an error message saying that it can't sync.

Help!

That's interesting - I have a trial as well and my Calender and Contacts are definitely push, but my mail. that said my friend has a trial and everything is push for him.

in fact, as of now, my me.com website doesn't sync properly.

Until apple fixes this im sticking with a trial. its too slow and not practical.

I had the same problem. I couldn't sync my contacts and calendar and mobileme kept saying that syncing was not available in the trial version and to upgrade. That was a couple of days ago (I did the manual install). I never did get it it work. I did open another trial account after the server issues seemed to get a little better and all is well. iPhone to Macbook syncs over the air both ways for contacts and calendar. I am now having an issue with my PC at work, but I suspect my IT department enabled a proxy requirement I haven't figured out yet. Try to sweet talk them on Monday. Wonder if bagels will help?

Just tried it again, everything is working 100%. I quite like this, push is amazing especially the e-mail.
