MobileMe trial to family pack upgrade

Hi all-

After much deliberation, I finally broke down this morning and signed up for a MobileMe trial account. After playing around with it for an hour or so, I decided that it was worth having, but for my wife and daughter as well.

I found a reseller on Ebay and purchased a boxed family pack. Seller did not email me the code, but will ship me the box.

When I get the box...what exactly is the upgrade procedure...because I've read conflicting information on a variety of sites (including this forum). Entering the code is straightforward....however, my account shows trial (single user). If I enter the code, will it reflect that my account is part of a family pack? I have this fear that I will enter the code...and it will still show just an annual subscription for myself.

Plus, there is this info listed in my account:

To add more storage or upgrade to a Family Pack, you must convert your trial account to a paid subscription. Any time left in your free trial will not carry over.
Losing the trial period I understand, but the convert to paid subscription is what has me questioning this.

Maybe I'm just overthinking all of this.

Many thanks to those who reply.

The code converts from trial to paid subscription. Your email will be the primary account. You then add up to four more sub accounts.
