Shared Calendars

Anyone figure out how to setup iCal on the iPhone to use both your personal Mac-based iCalendar and a shared iCal from someone else? Used to be able to sync when through iTunes. Now with over-the air MobileMe, I can only get one at a time. The initial wired sync through iTunes did have both. Apple's help pages do mention this "unexpected result" but have no solution.

I don't have an answer for you, but I was hoping that one could share calendars between mobileme users (like members of a family). If that worked, I would jump my family to MobileMe in a heartbeat. We desperately need family calendar that syncs to all of our iPhone & iPod touch devices! Google Calendar has the sharing, but not the sync/push. (I also dislike their web mail interface.)

So, is is possible to share calendars between mobileme users?

I have an email into Apple's MobileMe support people, just waiting for a reply. With the new iPhone support for separate, colored calendars, it actually makes sense to have shared calendars on the device.
I'll definitely post any response I get from apple here

Please let us know what support responds with. I would love to get MobileMe for my wife and I, but it needs to "work" for us.

We want to have separate email and contacts, but we want to have a shared calendar that we can both make add/update/deletes to.

I thought i could run two MobileMe accounts on the iPhone. One for everything personal, and the other pushing just the calendar to share. Turns out you can only sync one account at a time.

My solution is to register at http://live.mail2web.com and then use the exchange support on the iPhone to share the calendar. Viola, you have a free shared push calendar.

Which of course didn't answer my question. They made it sound like the shared calendar pushing was only unavailable during the switch. Well, the switch now seems complete, and I can't find shared calendar pushing.
From looking at other forums and threads, it seems that shared calendar pushing is impossible at this time--at least, without using third-party options.
