    Has anyone merged their MobileMe account into iCloud yet? I'm asking this is because I've been using mobile since it first came out and now that I have Lion and iCloud beta. I saw the option to merge my MobileMe account into an iCloud account Which would be the same domain name@me! However, which options am I gonna loose from MobileMe?! It seems to have all the options that I used except iDisk and less mail spaces? amiright? Can someone school me about this? Thanx

    You can't merge them yet, it's only a beta. iDisk, Gallery, iWeb publishing and keychain storage not present in iCloud (currently)

    I am a little surprised that while iCloud documents doesn't support PDFs or picture files, but does apparently support MS Office documents

    Oh really? I didn't know that since I saw the button merge MobileMe to iCloud I figure I will post something before I click on it! I'm guessing it won't work even if I press on it right?

    While that does sound really good about the extra storage

    according to this
    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1207520

    after the first year is up you will automatically get charged for the extra space, its only free for first year, so you have to remember to opt out if you don't want it

    I'm not going to turn down some free storage, but am wondering how I'm going to fill 20+ Gb with iWork and MS Office docs :confused:

    If you use MS Office, Microsoft's own cloud based tools are worth a try. They are far from perfect but editing a Word document from a browser works pretty well.

    Dammit, they lied. Or were economical with the truth. Looks like rather than 20Gb extra for MobileMe customers you actually get your iDisk quota. So I now have 55Gb to fill with Excel spreadsheets and charts.

    Yep.

    I followed as suggested - upload the bookmarks from my Mac.

    It seems that iCloud backup isn't working.

    My address book is showing and iCloud back up. I'm sure I missed some small detail.

    What do you mean you uploaded bookmarks? Shouldn't that have happened when I merged?
