    I currently use my gmail as my apple id, i dont really want a new email address.

    so if i sign up for icloud will that just give me a free me.com email address i dont have to use, and all my @gmail.com apple stuff will be synced.


    Like with the free find my iphone thing

    I posted about this in the main iCloud Introduction thread, and was wondering the same thing. I really hope they provide some means of transferring purchase history, etc., to the @me.com account.

    Well you can't sign up for a new me.com account anymore.

    So maybe they are phasing out me.com entirely?

    Nope, on Apple's iCloud website it says...

    This is something I am interested in also

    I use my mm account to sync contacts and calendar, but my iTunes account is my gmail address

    Unsure how they will tie together

    Ditto. I have an itunes and mobile me. Does this mean I'd have to pick one or the other for iCloud?
