    Me too. Servers are being hammered. Just have to be patient.

    Yes I am also unable to make the switch. Kind of irritating but I am sure it will get done today

    Same message here, tried it on two different machines about a dozen times each, same result. Its not even trying to move either, it flashes up for a split second some kind of progress bar thats empty, then this message comes up every time.

    Once you get there, you will be unable to receive email...at least that is the case for me.

    Did Apple borrow iCloud from RIM ? ;)

    Seriously - my iPad was stuck verifying restore with Apple for an age
    iCloud is giving me this error too....

    I realise that the servers are stressed, but it's hardly a glowing inditement of the new iCloud servers if they can't handle this stress.

    Got mine through, with all calendars, contacts, and emails perfectly making the transition across an iPad 2, iPhone 4, and two macs.

    Yeah I've been getting that error all day too. Also took me 6 tries to get iOS 5 but I finally did.

    I'm sure eventually we'll get to move to iCloud.

    Glad I am not the only one. I got iOS 5 and the Lion Update on the 1st try. Been trying to convert my me.com for hours now, which is a total bummer since I want to try out the new "Find My Friends" feature.

    I am the same... but I have been trying since 11 am atlantic time though, course it wasn't available until 2:30 our time. I upgraded to lion also with no problems and got iOS 5 on my iphone, which was a bit bumpy .

    You'd think they would have anticipated the mass numbers of people trying to use the server at one time. I'm surprised it wasn't seamless for how long it was anticipated.

    Can't Rid Myself of MobileMe

    I had virtually no trouble upgrading to iOS 5. Yeah, a few apps didn't make it back on to my iDevices but I'll just put them back. Then iCloud doesn't allow me to migrate. Ugh. :(

    Servers have been crushed today. I don't need iCloud at this very second but it would've been nice to get it all done tonight. My AppleTV is taking forever, and had two errors.

    It took me about 5x to get through and migrate to iCloud. Keep trying, you will find a crack in the pavement and slip through.

    When I go to me.com/move either directly or by referral from System Preferences or iCloud.com it just immediately takes me to me.com/find.

    I don't even get an error message about moving the account.
