    One of the reasons I got mobileme and an iphone is so I can access important documents anytime anywhere.

    Or at least I thought I could. Apparently, there is NO WAY to access your idisk via an iphone. The login screen changes on an iphone and me.com is essentially a dummy page. All the other apps (contacts, calendar, etc) are accessible, of course, on the iphone.

    But if I want to access a document from my idisk in my iphone, I first have to download it from the cloud on my computer and then email it to myself.

    How come I can't access the idisk directly from the iphone??? This is really lame, I must say.

    I think the problem is that the iPhone/iPod touch don't really have a file structure or way of saving things outside of individual applications.

    As such, you could download stuff but wouldn't be able to do much with it - that's probably why Apple has blocked iDisk.
