    Has anyone seen when the free trial of Mobile Me will be available? I assume it will launch in "mid-July" along with the service? I'm anxious to get a decent user name. ;) (Not a .Mac user)

    yeah, I haven't seen an actual date yet, but I'm sure it's a safe bet to say that the trial will be offered the same day MobileMe is officially launched, which, as you said, will be later on this month

    Just do the 60 day .Mac trial now and it will go to MobileMe, then you'll be able to keep your .Mac email address after the transition.

    I think that they need to release Mobile Me and software 2.0 a few days before July 11. On July 11, all of the servers will be so jamed that between activation of your new iPhone and getting setup on Mobile Me it may be tough getting on. If it were launched say 3 days before and a early release of 2.0, people could get everything set up and ready for iPhone 3G.

    Duh! Thank you! I don't know why I didn't think to see if there was a free trial for .mac. :eek:

    I just signed up and got my first-choice user name. :)

    I kind of agree. It's already enough of a strain with so many people downloading the firmware update on the day it's released, but add the additional people buying the new iPhone and trying to log onto the app store, and you've got even more of a problem. I just hope that it'll be able to hold up ok and not cause a lot of issues. once I get my new iPhone in my hands, I'm going to want to be able to log into the app store and fill it full of cool apps to play around with

    Small question--can I change the the spelling of my name? Not my user name (example: john.smith@mac.com)--the name associated with my account (ex. John Smith)--I have a Spanish character in my last name that I didn't enter when I signed up. Stupid.

    ETA: I found it.
