MobileMe also gives you an elegant online Gallery for sharing your photos with friends and family, and iDisk for accessing and sharing files via your computer, the web, and your iPhone. And if you ever lose your iPhone, MobileMe can help you find it or remotely wipe your data to protect your privacy. Note that the Find My iPhone feature is not available in all areas.

And if you ever lose your iPhone, MobileMe can help you find it or remotely wipe your data to protect your privacy.

No matter where you go or what device you use, all your information is up to date. Click to enlarge.

Keep everything in sync across your iPhone, Mac, PC, and the web automatically. Click to enlarge.

Contacts, emails and calendar events are pushed to your iPhone/iPod automatically, no docking required. Click to enlarge.

Mail, contacts, and calendar.
MobileMe keeps your mail, contacts, and calendar information in the "cloud" and uses push technology to keep everything in sync across your iPhone, Mac, PC, and the web automatically. So no matter where you go or what device you use, all your information is up to date--no docking required.

Push email.
When you join MobileMe, you get a me.com email account that's always up to date. New messages are pushed to your iPhone or iPod touch automatically, and you're notified the instant they arrive. MobileMe constantly checks for new messages, so you don't have to. And when you use MobileMe, you'll notice that the inbox on your iPhone looks a lot like the inbox on your Mac at home, which also looks a lot like the inbox on your PC at work. That's because it is. Read messages are marked as read, and all your folders are exactly the way you left them, no matter what device you use to check your email. Last but not least, your MobileMe inbox is entirely ad free and includes spam and virus protection.

Push contacts.
With MobileMe Contacts, your entire address book is accessible from your computer, your iPhone, and on the web. Say you meet someone and add that person to Contacts on your iPhone. MobileMe automatically pushes the new contact to the cloud, and in seconds it appears in Address Book on your Mac or in Outlook on your PC. You don't have to connect your iPhone to your computer or do anything at all. Your new friend's information--his phone number, email address, photos and notes, such as "sat next to me at the parenting seminar"--is exactly where it should be, anytime you need it.

Push calendar.
MobileMe keeps your calendar in sync across your Mac, PC, iPhone, and iPod touch, so you always know where you need to be and when you need to be there. Change the time for your doctor's appointment on your computer at work, and it's automatically updated on your iPhone--no docking required. Add an event on your iPhone and it appears in the Calendar application on me.com in seconds, then syncs to your computers. You can even manage multiple calendars. So you'll never miss a lunch date, soccer game, or important meeting again.

Works with the desktop applications you know well.
MobileMe keeps your data in sync across the applications you use every day--Mail, Address Book, and iCal on a Mac; Microsoft Outlook on a PC (Windows XP or Windows Vista); and the built-in applications on your iPhone or iPod touch. All your information stays up to date and is right where you want it, so there's no need to learn new software or change your day-to-day routine.

Find My iPhone.
It’s human to misplace things, even your iPhone. The good news is that if you do lose your iPhone, MobileMe can help you find it. Simply enable Find My iPhone in MobileMe settings on your phone and then you can use the feature anytime you need it.

Locate your iPhone on a map.
Anytime you lose your iPhone just log in to your account page from any computer to display your phone’s approximate location on a map.

Display a message or play a sound on your lost iPhone.
If your iPhone is nearby, you can play a sound to help you find it, even if your ringer is set to silent. Or you can display a message on the screen with information that will help others return it to you.

Protect your privacy with Remote Wipe.
If you’re concerned that your iPhone has been permanently lost or stolen, you can initiate a remote wipe from your account page at me.com. This restores your iPhone to its factory settings, ensuring that your personal information is nobody’s business but your own. If you eventually find your iPhone, simply connect it to your computer, use iTunes to restore the data from your most recent backup, and you're good to go.

Contributions welcome.
You aren't the only one shooting pictures. With MobileMe Gallery, you can get the shots you wish you had by allowing friends to contribute their photos. They can do it from a browser or via email.

Amazing with iPhone and Apple TV.

Make it public.
iDisk includes a Public folder that makes working with others easy. Just add the files you want to share and your friends and coworkers can access them using any web browser. They can download any file in your Public folder to make changes and post their own files, too.

Share large files.
Sharing files too big to email as attachments is a snap with iDisk. Just upload what you want to share, choose your recipients, and iDisk sends them an email with a link to download the file. You can assign a password to keep your files secure and even set the number of days the download link is available.

Space available.
Your MobileMe membership includes 20GB of storage space for all your email, photos, files, and more. Put in perspective, 20GB of space is enough to store nearly 7000 high-quality photos. You can tell MobileMe how much of your 20GB to allocate to Mail and how much to your iDisk. However you split it up, rest assured you'll have plenty of space to store what's important to you.

This is a great bargain compared with buying a renewal from Apple for $99. But renewal online using this product is a little tricky; you have to bypass renewal by credit card etc. at Apple's price. Here's how:

1) Go to [...] and log in.
2) Go to Account (click on your name at top right). You'll be asked to enter your password again.
3) Select "Billing Info" in list at left
4) Click on "Apply Activation Key" in bottom left
5) Click radio button "Apply to an existing account" and enter the 16-letter activation code in the box you have bought here
6) Confirm Renewal (you may have to enter your name and password yet again).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, bad delivery system March 12, 2010
Verified Purchase
I have no qualms with MobileMe. I use it to host my website, and that's great. What I do have a problem with is how this was purchased. All you are getting is a product code. That is it. This has me wondering why shipping an empty box from New Jersey to Seattle, WA, is needed. Talk about a waste of resources: packaging, fuel for shipping, labor to package and ship it. Now, I'm grateful for the lower price on Amazon (saved around 25 frog skins when compared with Apple), but the delivery needs to be something like this: buy MobileMe code -> have MobileMe code e-mailed to me -> use MobileMe code.

2.0 out of 5 stars Getting better, still overpriced September 23, 2009
By Nemo
Verified Purchase
MobileMe has been much maligned over the years. Used to go by the name of .Mac. Apple charges $99 a year for the service, way more than it's worth, but you can usually catch it at a discount on Amazon which brings the price closer to the true value.

If you have multiple Macs or an iPhone, MobileMe is great to have. Allows you to synch up your favorites, mail accounts, system preferences, from device to device. You can also find, lock, and remotely wipe your iPhone using the service. Truth be told though I think for most users the iPhone locate/wipe/lock features will be fun to play with once or twice and never used again.

MobileMe offers online storage and web page creation as well. The problem with these two areas is that there are so many cheaper (even free) services that do the job better. I think for me the biggest drawback is that the online storage component, iDisk, still does not offer SSL or encryption, which makes storing files online a risky proposition.

MobileMe is worthless if you are a Windows user.

Apple's trying, it's getting better -- I think it's worth about $29.99 now. Keep trying, Apple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful... Not so much for Windows. September 20, 2009
We all know that Apple has the market cornered on integration of software and hardware. This product is fantastic. HOWEVER, one note of caution. IF you are using it in a Windows environment, there is no native support for ICal or contacts on a Windows machine. OUTLOOK IS REQUIRED!

(Mac folks, if you are looking for the companion software on your Mac, look in system settings and click on .Mac or MobileMe)

If you have an Iphone, this is a MUST HAVE application. Not only will it synchronize your contacts and calendars to the web, it can locate your phone if it is lost.

If you Iphone is on, it can send a text message and sound off (even if your sound is turned off)

It will locate the phone within 1 Meter if it has a decent GPS AND Cell tower signal.

It will give an approximate Google Maps placement to within say 1/4 mile if there is no GPS signal. (At least you can know that yeah I did leave the phone at my friends house.

If you can not find the IPhone, MobileME can wipe the data on your phone clean the next time someone turns it on.

If you phone is damaged or recovered after wiping it clean. When you replace it, your contacts are automatically updated in minutes from the last time you synchronized it.

Finally, MobileME gives you virtual hard disk space to back up and snag important files from ANYWHERE to any machine with internet access. The method is not nearly as cluggy as other systems like Carbonite or others.

Hey, what can I say... it works :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great features if you have itouch or iphone July 26, 2009
Verified Purchase
I love the features this offers. I can sync my itouch with my mac without even docking it. my calendar, addressbook and email are all automatically updated. it also updates pictures. it does this all through push technology. with itouch you have to be in a wifi spot to sync without docking. with iphone you just have to be where you get service. also, all information is on web so you can look it up from any computer if you forget your itouch. had i known about this, i probably would have saved the money on my blackberry and just kept a regular cell phone and then purchased this for my itouch. blackberry's have lots of problems syncing with macs so i am very excited about this program because i can keep my information with me on my itouch.

i forgot to add that this keeps my multiple mac laptops synced with each other without me having to do anything.

I have used this product for almost a year now. I purchased it again to renew it as it is cheaper usually to do that through amazon. One thing to remember is that if you catch it at a good price, you can renew anytime during your membership and it will add another year to your membership--even if you are only 1 day in. I know some people that bought 5 and have 5 years worth--there doesn't seem to be a limit to how long apple will let you pay in advance.

I think it is worth every penny. there is usually a 60 day free trial through apple if you want to check it out.
