When Apple announced iCloud at yesterdays WWDC 2011, they also announced that the service would replace their current MobileMe offering, and existing users will be able to continue to use MobileMe until the 30th of June 2012.
MobileMe is basically now a closed service, as you can no longer sign up for a new account and you also cannot upgrade your existing account to a Family Pack account or add any additional storage to your existing package.
When Apple launches iOS 5 and iCloud later this year, existing MobileMe users will be able to transfer their existing MobileMe email address to their new iCloud account.
It isn’t clear as yet whether customers who recently renewed their MobileMe subscription will get a refund from Apple, it seems at the moment it is only people who purchased a retail box of MobileMe and haven’t activated it who are eligible for the refund.
