On episode 1311, Rafe and gang suggested that Verizon’s new plan would be a better deal than Mobile Me. At $8 month per phone for Verizon new protection plan, it will cost a subscriber $96 annually for the same services offered by the Find My iPhone features with Apple’s MobileMe,however with Mobile Me you also get push email, online disk storage, Back to My Mac computer syncing and screens haring services, etc etc etc…. However, Mobile Me is just not a better value, it is cheaper because with Mobile Me you can use Find My iPhone with an unlimited number of iOS devices.
