Apple's MobileMe looks like a pale shade of what it could have been. It might, for instance, have been free and open source like Funambol's myFUNAMBOL service.
You just spent up to $600 on your new iPhone...and can't afford to sync it. Never fear, Funambol is here (if you're a Windows or Linux user).
Funambol offers service providers a way to offer MobileMe service that actually works, without the compromises.
Sync your iPhone contacts over the air with Funambol's iPhone app.
