    Ok guys....plan on purchasing 2 32gig iP4's in the next two weeks and figured I would try out MM for a year and see if I like it. Not too sure if I can get away with 1 single account or the family pack. Let me know if I am understanding this right...

    If i get a single user account:

    1. I will be able to see both phones on the find my iphone app?

    2. I will be able to sync 1 single calender and address book across 1 MBP and both iP4's?

    Hypothetically lets say I add an event onto the calender on my iP4, the next time I sync my iP4 with my MBP the updated calender will be updated with the new event on both devices. Now lets say my wife comes home at a later point and syncs her iP4 with the MBP, but she has added a new event to the calender on her phone. Will calender on her iP4 update with the changes I made earlier and will the MBP calender be updated with her changes?

    I am assuming the same will go with any Address Book changes under the same scenario?

    If this is all true, then what advantages am I missing out on by not purchasing the family pack?

    Extra storage, separate email accounts, separate contacts and calendar events.

    If you have no qualms with you and your wife sharing everything that's offered, e.g. the 30 GB storage, address books, calendar events, etc., then a single-user account is perfect.

    iphone and macs do push syncs so you don't have to sync anything. it does it automatically over the air. all changes go immediately. You're at work, you add a calendar event and your wife launches her calendar app 20 seconds later while on a business trip 2000 miles away, she can see the event. same as address book.
