My iCloud Storage plan expires in 2050. An error?

Do you have 2050 as an expiration date?

Mine is saying the same thing. I did have a .mac address, but seeing that everyone is reporting the same thing, I would assume it is a bug. A shame and a bug, nevertheless.

I got it also, but I'm sure it's a computer mistake and Apple will fix it soon. I was thinking it might be a problem with the date display but my account was supposed to revert back to the free level today and it hasn't. But I really can't imagine Apple letting us have that free storage (though Microsoft did do that very same thing for me with Sky Drive - I have a free 25GB with them for life).

Here is an Apple Insider story about the glitch - http://appleinsider.com/articles/12/09/30/icloud-glitch-extends-25gb-storage-space-limit-to-2050

I got the same thing. I have had MM since .mac and even eWorld if you can imagine that. I never hardly paid much for any of it, getting codes and subs off the internet..
would be nice if they just grandfathered the 10K of us .mac users into some nice long term legacy subscription.

As long as the glitch also doesn't charge my account for 38 years of 20gb of storgage.

I hope this sticks, while I don't want to be the guy that "expects" anything, I did lay down a horribly overpriced $100 a year since the demise of iTools, Soooo. ;)

If this is somehow a nice gesture to everyone who suffered through MobileMe, then consider me happy! :)

I've been with the service back when it was called iTools and when they gave you 20MB of space. Then upgraded to .Mac, then MobileMe, and now iCloud.

My iPhone didn't show the date, but in System Preferences > iCloud on my Mac it showed up. I hope it sticks, I want the extra space for phone backups and it would be very nice to keep it that way.

Mine still shows 2050, two days after it should have reverted to the Free Plan. Would be great if this stayed that way but I just can't imagine Apple allowing this. My question is are people actually seeing the 25GB? I am only using 3GB right now, so I'm wondering if I actually have 25GB.

Is it a bit odd that this hasn't been on the front page of Macrumors yet? Or has it and I missed it?

Sorry folks; I think we hope wrong ... it only means that iCloud end in 2050; but you still have to pay each year whatever option you choose ... at least iCloud might live longer compared to .mac and MobileMe :rolleyes:

but funny enough it still show 25 GB storage ... 21 GB free since the last cleanup
