9 to 5 Mac notes that many MobileMe users have noticed a change in their account status. Users report that their accounts have changed from “Individual” to “Full Member.” After some digging around the MacRumors forums, Mark Gurman found evidence of these changes as early as May 18.
There have been rumblings that these changes have been made to both individual and family pack members. Although, I haven’t seen any changes to mine, it’s likely Apple is just slowly rolling it out.
It would make a lot of sense for Apple to offer free MobileMe services. Free could have mail, calendar, and contacts with full membership adding find my iPhone, iDisk, and Gallery.
I suppose we’ll have to wait and see but I would love to get some of my iPhone-using family members on board with MobileMe, even if it was just for syncing.
