    I intend to test mobileMe for its tools to access data via on the web,
    which could be useful to me sometimes.
    If I later decide to upgrade the trial account to a family account -
    will the trial account automatically become the main account or can I
    choose it to be one of the "smaller" accounts?
    If it has to be the main account, then I'd rather create a "temporary"
    account that I will not use anymore later on (probably using another
    "disposable" e-mail address).

    TIA

    Marc

    That is what I meant - the member name I provide for me.com.

    I guess I cannot get multiple trial accounts for one e-mail address.
    Fortunately I can provide multiple e-mail addresses.

    Unfortunately I live in Switzerland in the center of Europe, and
    amazon.com ships that only to US addresses. I wil pay about double the
    amazon.com price over here :-(
    I guess there is not too much to get around that if amazon does not ship
    to addresses outside of the US.

    I see, the member name I use for activating the retail
    package/activation code becomes the primary account.
