MobileMe has given me the pleasure of working for 1 day, and then failing to sync any of my calendars. So - I turned of MobileMe on my PC with Outlook 2007, and I removed the account from my iPhone and synced via iTunes.

From here, I turned MobileMe back on and everything worked great, for only one day. I'm back to all three calendars reflecting different data.

I think Apple put out MobileMe a little to soon. Disappointment.

Sorry it isn't working out for you. My account is working great - all features working fully, except push, which is so so. Hopefully Apple will improve this soon.

it is working really good for me, the only issue that i have is that my computer 10.4.11 thinks that it is still on idisk, and not mobile and only giving me 10 gigs instead of 20gigs

For me, everything is syncing fine between my iPhone and my Vista PC with Outlook 2007, but I cannot access my calendar on me.com. I can get to my email and my contacts fine, but I can't access the calendar. I suppose that's not TOO big an issue, but I'd like to tweak the colors a bit and get it all working correctly. We'll see what happens, I suppose.

Outlook works flawlessly for me....

Me.com on the other hand changes the times of my appointments, and lags out at random....

It's a crap service that shouldn't have been released yet.... I wish Gmail would come up with some really nice integration for the iPhone, i'd love to just stick with it.

Every other click in the calendar I get an error message "Calendar cannot access the server" or something stupid like that.... pisses me off for 99.00

I'm still having a hard time seeing the justification of paying $99 a year for email.
I use IMAP google setup for mail, and for my calendar, I sync my Outlook on my PC with Google automatically using their sync tool. I can have it sync every 5 minutes if I wanted. and every time you access the calendar in the 2.0 software, it syncs to google anyway, which would sync with your PC, so it may not be push, but it will all be the same working off your phone.

I'm not sold on it either (yet). But because the push feature is much slower than Apple expected (and advertised), they are increasing all sunscriptions by 30days. Trials too.

Agreed completely. I too have turned my back on MobileMe in favor of an Exchange account, which, by the way works WONDERFULLY and costs me LESS for a year's worth of service than MobileMe.

MobileMe has been working OK for me. I've had a few bumps along the way but as of right now it's working great.
I did have a problem with appointments being synced at different times until I noticed that I had the server set to a different time zone than my Mac and iPhone. After I changed them all to the same time zone, the problem stopped.

The only thing I wish is that Entourage would get an update to sync contact photos. Until they do, I am using MMe instead of my Exchange account for anything other than email.

I dig my mobile me. Everything seems to be working well, including the mail.

Mine works well also. Maybe now I will change my work email to my mobile me and just use that. Not having to work with MS in the middle is bliss.

It's being "updated" this weekend...so we'll see what happens.
I wonder what the update will change? And are you speaking of the current weekend we're in, or this coming (next weekend) weekend?

This current weekend we are in. They (an announcement on Apples web site) said that it would be down, off and on this weekend.

Oh, cool! Thanks - I hadn't even noticed it being down when it was.

Which service are you using for your Exchange account?

I'm lucky; I'm able to use the Exchange ActiveSync with my server at work.

Outlook works fine; it seems there always problems when an Apple application has to interact with one from Microsoft.

Works great and it doesn't cost anything.
