What Happens to Me after 6/30/12?  Do I get to keep my @me.com address from MobileMe because My Mac, PC nor iOS device is supported by iCloud

 

On 6/30/12 All ACTIVE MobileMe accounts that havn't MOVED to iCloud will be deleted as MobileMe is no longer available.

 

Yes, this has a lot of customers upset, but you can still keep your account active and going until you are able to address the issue with the current versions of your computer and devices.

 

iCloud does have a web based version like any other email address out there.  You may not be able to access the account on your Computers or devices as you would like to for what ever reason, but this will help you to keep your email address and gain access to it.

 

iCloud: Supported system requirements

 

You can KEEP your MobileMe email address and move it to iCloud even though your devices are not compatible and here is how.

 

 

****Mac OS X 10.4.11 and before: DOES NOT fall into this catagorey as 10.4.11 doesn't Support Safari 5.****

 

NON-Supported Devices & Browsers for iCloud

 

DEVICES & COMPUTERS

Before moving the account to iCloud.  First create a MobileMe back up of all your data.  This will ensure it has been saved to your computer.

 

How to back up MobileMe data:

 

 

Summary

You can back up your MobileMe data to your Mac or Microsoft Windows-based PC.

This is different from syncing with MobileMe: syncing should not be considered a backup of your data because changes to the data can propagate automatically.

Sync your MobileMe account to me.com and your current iOS device if you have one.

Make sure the data has synced to the device and http://me.com.

Then you will need to DISABLE MobileMe syncing from your Computer and Devices

On the iPhone

To delete your MobileMe account from the iPhone/Pad/Pod Touch, tap Settings Mail, Contacts, Calendars Tap your MobileMe account.  Next, you will turn the sliders off for Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Bookmarks Calendars.  You are going to be asked if you want to keep or delete the data from the iPhone/Pad/Pod Touch.  Make sure you KEEP on the iPhone/Pad/Pod Touch.

 

This will prevent data loss.

 

 

Then Tap Delete Account. DON'T FORGET TO KEEP THE DATA ON THE DEVICE!!!

 

On the Mac

 

Click on System Preferences MobileMe Account tab Sign Out.

 

To Move your account to iCloud

 

 

☞☞☞☞IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO BACK UP THE MOBILEME DATA AND TO SIGN OUT OF MOBILEME ON ALL DEVICES AS THIS CAN CAUSE POSSIBLE DATA LOSS DUE TO THE CURRENT OS YOU ARE USING.*****

Summary

If you have an active MobileMe account when you move to iCloud, you’ll be able to keep your @me.com or @mac.com email address and move your MobileMe Mail, Contacts, and Calendars, as well as your Bookmarks, to the new service.

 

 

Go to http://me.com/move

 

Log in with your FULL MobileMe email address including @me.com

(For @mac users, use @me.com just to log in.  You will later see your account is @mac.com still)

 

As you go thorough the prompts, you will see an ALERT regarding if your OS is supported by iCloud.

 

Ignore this and select YES.  This will contiue the iCloud set up.

 

Once it is done, you will have web access to iCloud via a supported browser (see below) for iCloud.

 

 

icloud.com
