    "In addition to the free 5 GB, MobileMe members (to be precise, those on "individual" memberships, or the master account user only, not the sub-accounts, for "family pack" memberships) were automatically given the extra 20 GB tier, until the close of the MobileMe service on June 30, 2012."

    Got a mild shock when I checked the other day and found I'm using 4 GB. Need to spend some time figuring out why and cutting back. The iPhone is the issue in my case.

    I would easily use over 5 GB if I could pay for it, but it really isn't in my budget right now. I have a 64 GB iPhone, a 16 GB iPhone (for work), and a 16 GB iPad. I am only able to backup the 16 GB iPhone, and it takes almost the whole 5 GB. I would easily need at least 30 GB to backup my 64 GB phone. I am a little disappointed they only give 5 GB of space, but I'll just stick to backing up to my computer for now.

    I take a lot of photos and videos. The whole reason I got the 64 GB model was so I could take more videos without running out of space.
