    Hey all,

    I know I'm new but I'm normally a reader. Anyways, I haven't been able to find a thread on here (excuse me if there is one, I must have overlooked it), since mobileme will be push mail, calendar, and contacts, will those three items be push on my iphone over edge? In other words, is it worth it to buy mobileme to get push email on my first gen phone? Or can I not do that?

    It will work fine with the first gen iPhone -- EDGE handles email beautifully, only the web chokes it up.

    That's a good question to ask...I think the answer is yes, but obviously it will do it somewhat slower (I should think). Looking at the website (MobileMe) I cant see anything to suggest it isn't possible (Look under requirements)

    Edit: From MobileMe website:

    System Requirements

    Compatible device: Mac, PC, iPhone, or iPod touch.
    For Mac: Mac OS X v10.4.11 or latest version of Mac OS X Leopard; Safari 3, Firefox 2, or later.
    For PC: Windows Vista or Windows XP Home or Professional (SP2) or later; Internet Explorer 7, Safari 3, Firefox 2, or later. Microsoft Outlook 2003 or later recommended.
    For iPhone and iPod touch: 2.0 software.
    iTunes 7.7 or later (free download from
    Internet access with compatible ISP (broadband required for web applications); fees may apply.
    Some features require Mac OS X v10.5 and iLife ’08.

    I interpret this as as long as it has firmware 2.0 you should be fine. Hope this helps.
