    I am going through the process of moving from MobileMe to iCloud. Went to accept the terms and then I get, "Please try again later. Due to high demand, we are unable to move your account at this time. You can continue to use MobileMe."

    Are others getting this message as well? Is there a work around for this? Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks :)

    Uh, that message was not written especially for you. Heed the advice.

    I get the same message, bit frustrating as I had difficulty upgrading the iPad last night due to server overload as well. Hopefully they get the problem resolved soon.

    I kept getting the same message last night. Kept trying and it finally worked.

    Apple's servers are probably overloaded with masses of people trying to move their accounts.

    Id try again in a few months. Should be ok by then. LOL. I have 5 accounts to migrate myself. I had 1 1/2 done and it got a error. Still have 5 of 5 to do <sigh>.

    I was getting the "try again later" problem and I am based in Australia.
    But, I got it to work straight away by tunnelling through a VPN to the US.

    So, it seems that Apple are rationing access to the process by IP address.

    "Due to high demand, we are unable..." iCloud message

    After 5 days of trying and an hour online with a Apple .me person I am still unable to move my .me to iCloud. I keep receiving the message "Due to high demand, we are unable to move your account at this time. You can continue to use your account"

    I don't see many people online posting this issue any more so I can't imagine it is widespread. Anyone have this issue and if they solved
