    So I can push data back and forth between the iphone and mobile me. When I update anything on the iphone or mobile me isn't it supposed to push that data back to my Mac? Like if I update a contact or iCal appointment.

    No. That part is Sync. Meaning every 15 min (default).

    I think someone said they now have Push working for Mail to the Mac Only (no Windows).

    Syncing only refers to changes from your mac to MobileMe, which as you say take 15 minutes (or you can sync manually). Changes from MobileMe to your mac, however, is indeed push and should happen within a few seconds (I just tested this on my laptop and it is working fine). If it's not working for you, it should be once the general issues that people are having with MobileMe are settled.

    System Preferences -> MobileMe.

    Make sure Back To My Mac is turned on - MobileMe uses this to push data to iCal and Address Book, otherwise they get updated at the 15 minute intervals.

    Back To My Mac is not required. I have it turned off and still get changes automatically pushed to ical and my address book.
