Following the massive iCloud announcements at WWDC, Apple just updated the official MobileMe page to inform users that new subscribers are no longer accepted as Apple moves everything to iCloud, but existing apps will be usable until June 30, 2012. Furthermore, Apple has posted more details on a new support document available here. All accounts have been extended to June 30, 2012, free of charge and all data from MobileMe (including email addresses and contacts) will be automatically transitioned to iCloud when you sign up.
Can I create a new MobileMe account?
You can no longer create a new 60-day trial account or start a new subscription using a code contained in a MobileMe box. However, if you have a Family Pack subscription, you can still create new family member accounts.
Can I upgrade to a Family Pack or purchase additional storage?
Effective June 6, 2011, you can no longer upgrade your Individual account to a Family Pack or purchase additional storage for your MobileMe account.
I purchased a MobileMe box and have not used the activation code inside. Can I get refund for it?
Yes. If you have an unused activation code from a MobileMe box, you can submit a refund request.
