I have 10.6.8 Snow Leopard and can't use iCloud (which is installed on my iPhone 4S) because I don't have OS X Lion. Is there a way to upgrade to Lion and use iCloud without having to pay for the upgrade? Is there a stand-alone upgrade? I was under the impression the transition to iCloud would be easy.


I have a MacBook Pro with 10.6.8 Snow Leopard, and an iPhone 4S with iCloud, and want to use iCloud to connect my MBP and iPhone (the way iCloud is supposed to...) but checking around for 10.7.1, I found out that I am supposed to pay 49.99 for OS X Lion. Is there any way to get this upgrade for free, since I already have an iCloud account, an iPhone, and Snow Leopard? Or am I forced to once again pay $$$ for apple products?
