You can remove menu icons by dragging them out of the menubar while holding the ⌘-key. This behavior does not work with icons from third party applications (e.g. Dropbox, Growl...).

There is no supported way to do this. Having said that, you can do it using scutil: louis@Arios:~$ sudo scutil > set Setup:/Network/BackToMyMac > d.add <YYY> <XXX>.members.btmm.icloud.com > set Setup:/Network/BackToMyMac > quit louis@Arios:~$ Replacing <YYY> with the UID of the user account on the system (for most people ...

It's basically not possible to make a new MobileMe account while the transition to iCloud is happening. There are some loopholes (like adding a new account under an existing Family account) - but most will have to wait until iCloud is released. The official word on that is a vague - in the fall of 2011. From the Apple preview page covering Contacts, ...

This has changed a little with 10.7. It's no longer done via @computername.mobilemename.members.mac.com, it's now done via members.btmm.icloud.com, and its no longer as simple as your mobilemename. Step 1: Find out your iCloud BTMM domain Either of these commands will provide your BTMM domain: # dns-sd -E # mDNS -E The output is formatted slightly ...

At iCloud.com you can see your mail, calendar, etc :)

You will still be able to access the mobile me website and files making the website through June 30th, but iCloud does not offer web hosting or internet-based disk storage. After June 30th you will need to find a different web hosting service. Longer version here: http://www.apple.com/mobileme/transition.html

Yes. You will have to opt in to switch your account over, but it sounds like it will be fairly painless as long as you agree to all the new (unannounced as of yet) license terms. From the Apple FAQ on the MobileMe/iCloud transition: Will I be able to keep my MobileMe email address when I move to iCloud? Yes. If you have an active MobileMe account ...

MobileMe Gallery App is now an universal app.

No need to suppose, that just happend to me (somewhat). Preventive measures As of today, suppose you have an iPhone 4, iPad or new iPod Touch running iOS 4 and you had previously activated the free MobileMe "lost my iphone". Then you're in the best situation of all. Suppose you don't have any of the new iDevices, but still are on iOS 4 and want to activate ...

As I have attempted to do this myself, Im pretty sure you cant combine the two. You can try contacting Apple Support but they will probably tell you the same thing. Apple doesn't allow you merge AppleIDs or in other words use a mobileme AppleID for an iTunes account AppleID ( AppleIDs are just the username/email address I think). This sounds reasonable ...

MobileMe Gallery App for iPhone, iPod, and iPad

I don't really have a direct answer for you, but I would like to help by sharing what I know. I have a Mobile Me account, and there are no tools for editing your photos online. It's an image gallery. A gallery is meant just for viewing and not for editing. Mobile Me was designed to work in conjunction with the iLife software on a desktop mac. You edit the ...

Backup is used by the MobileMe Backup application. I don't recommend using it. Groups is for a now defunct Groups feature that they used to have. Library is used for MobileMe's syncing feature - primarily for Preferences and Bookmarks. Sites is used for webpages or anything you want shared at http://homepage.mac.com/username/. Note: PHP files, CGI ...

I found the answer: log out of MobileMe in the System Prefs panel, and then the iCloud panel will prompt you to log in (instead of offering the "Move to iCloud" button). Log in with your iCloud account and you should be all set. Worked perfectly for me.

Nope. Getting a mobileMe/iCloud email address is handled by Apple from their side. They are no longer supplying @me.com email addresses. Now just go to icloud.com.

Here is a fantastic article on moving to iCloud. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4918 And, yes, you can keep your current @me.com address. Instead of being associated with MobileMe, @me.com email addresses are now iCloud (and MobileMe user will be migrated over), so the email address that comes with iCloud is @me.com. Again, I believe you are able to keep ...

The reason they both still exist is because they are still separate services being offered by Apple. Users of MobileMe prior to the announcement of iCloud paid a yearly subscription fee for the service. Rather than refund those customers, Apple will continue to offer the MobileMe services only to those subscribers who have an active subscription. MobileMe ...

iOS 5 and iCloud should be coming out tomorrow. There should be improvements in this area. Hopefully this will help you. I know it is not what you would want to hear, but I have seen disappearing content like you describe. Especially with Exchange, and OS 10.6.x

This article from Apple Support answers some commonly-asked questions related to the Mobile Me to iCloud transition. This article from Apple Support explains how to move to iCloud. From this article we read the following: Inactive and expired MobileMe accounts do not need to move to iCloud. Simply use your inactive or expired account to sign up for an ...

Steve Jobs mentions in WWDC 2011, that "We'll give you a me.com email address," when speaking about iCloud. So - if your question was in reference to whether the @me.com addresses will disappear with the coming of the iCloud service, no, I don't think so.

You can actually just go into the "Mail, Contacts & Calendars" section of your system preferences on your Mac. Click the add account option on the left and then click the iCloud option on the right, it will give you the option to generate a new apple ID account with an option to make it a free @me.com account.

I read a few articles on the underpinning of Back To My Mac and supposedly some people have effectively connected via ssh, check out the discussion contained in this Macworld post. The best post in the thread is as follows: Use the following format for connecting as a differnent username: ssh user.name@hostname.username.members.mac.com. If ...

The service is only free to users of the iPhone 4, and if I recall correctly users of the iPad. It’s a feature that’s part of MobileMe, but now it’s also free on every iPhone 4 with iOS 4.2.* From the Apple Website, bold mine To use this functionality on any other device requires a full MobileMe subscription. It is automatically active once you have ...

If you go into Preferences, Accounts, select your account, then select the "Mailbox Behaviors" tab, there's an option to disable saving drafts on the server. I know you said you didn't want to disable saving of drafts, but this option will still save the draft on your computer, yet it won't mess up Mobile Me.

If you mean this icon: You must run iSync (by QuickSilver or Spotlight خق go into /Applications and double-click iSync) then uncheck "Show status in menu bar".

It seems I was being too impatient. After a while, a "(Remove)" link showed up when I expanded the device details on https://me.com/find/

You can ssh to your machine which has "Bac to my Mac" enabled like this: ssh -p 22 username@computername.mobilemename.members.mac.com

Big thanks to hobs and ghoppe who both had workable solutions. The main problem is that MobileMe Back To My Mac uses IPv6 addressing if available and perhaps exclusively, so I didn't think to use ping6 or traceroute6 and ssh is apparently smart enough to resolve either IPv4 or IPv6. ssh -p 22 username@computername.mobilemename.members.mac.com. works very ...


2

That's because the IP addresses for resolution are version 6. If you use ping6 or traceroute6 you can reach your host as well.

You can call AppleCare as suggested and merge all your purchases from the old Apple Id to the new Apple Id. I have multiple Apple IDs. Is there a way for me to consolidate them into a single Apple ID? Sorry, but this is not possible at this time via our online tools. You can speak with an AppleCare representative, who can help you consolidate your ...
