One Bad Apple – MobileMe

By , June 7, 2011 7:01 pm

MobileMe wasn’t one of Apples brightest moments. So yesterday at WWDC Apple introduced iCloud and the end of the MobileMe service. To prep for the transition to the cloud Apple has extended everyones MobileMe account until June 30, 2012 for free, which is pretty cool of Apple to do. Unless you are one of many user like my self that just paid for another year for the MobileMe service. I renewed my MobileMe account on May 25th.

On Apple’s Support forums a lot of people are complaining that Apple has left us out in the cold. Apple isn’t saying anything about this to anyone. If you call support they tell you you can ask for a full refund, but you will lose all your current email addresses and can’t get them back until you sign up for the iCloud service, but you might not be able to get the same addresses when you sign up for the iCloud service. So what am I to do? I don’t want to lose my address, I use it a lot.

Do you think that the people who just renewed have a valid complaint that they paid for a service that everyone is now getting for free or do you think we should stop complaining and deal with it.

I don’t expect a full refund, but I would like some type of response from Apple. Instead of letting people wonder if they are going to do anything for us. I would be happy if Apple would just tell us that “we are S.O.L. and to have a nice day”, at least we would know where we stand.

For more info about the MobileMe transition to iCloud, Apple has a little Knowledge Brief posted on their site.
