    Hi, if you currently have Mobileme, would you ditch it if Gmail starts to offer push email ? Just wondering..

    Not any longer since I believe find my iPhone is a MM subscription deal only … if I am wrong and it is not then I probably would ditch it.

    No. Mobile me syncs my contacts between conputer and three iPhones. Gmail would have to do that as well.

    No. My MobileMe email address is my primary email address and has been for the past 2 years. I couldn't lose that. Also, Apple keeps adding things that make it more and more worth the money each year. I'll gladly keep paying if Apple keeps improving and adding to the service.

    Not a chance. Email is just one part of what MobileMe offers.

    The syncing of everything (mail, contacts, calendar, files, bookmarks, etc.) between my two Mac's and my iPhone is the most valueable thing to me.

    Not a chance. Email is just a small part.

    Love iDisk. Love Find My iPhone. Love cross-syncing.

    I have a Google Apps account - I really want to like it, but I keep coming back to MobileMe. I just love it!

    I think a better question would be would you switch to MobileMe if they allowed you to use your own domain?

    syncing is the only reason i even have it, and i could probably deal without it, but its the most compelling feature that MM has.

    No way, the ability to auto sync contacts and calender and the push to other devices is worth every penny for me.

    I thought that if you setup Google as an Exchange account it uses the Activesync protocol to sync Contacts and Calendars?

    No; email is only a tiny part of why I have MobileMe.

    Push Gmail is already available through Nuevasync for only $25 a year. I've been using Gmail for years but I switched to MobileMe because it was designed specifically for the Mac and the iPhone. Syncing of bookmarks, iDisk, and the ability to publish photos from the iPhone directly to MobileMe are some of the other features that Google doesn't have, at least not natively on the iPhone.
