I have 2 issues with notes not syncing properly.  We have 2 MBP on 10.8.2 and one iPhone 4 and 1 iPhone 4c, both on 6.0.0

The 4S phone syncs to it's MBP fine, meaning that notes created or edited on the phone sync to the MBP ok.

The iPhone 4 won't sync when notes are created or edited on the phone.  Also the phone has 5 notes created before Mtn Lion and IOS 6 updates and the won't show up on th eMBP either. The iPhone 4 will sync to new notes created via the MBP.


Both iPhones exhibit the same issue going from the laptop to the phone.  If a note is edited ( a list gets another other item) the sync creates a duplicted note with the changes only showing up on the new duplicate note.


Any thoughts on what might be going on here?  The lack of syncing in one direction with the iPhone 4 combo is a bigger issue.  I think the other problem night be a bug, as it is consistant on both cases.

MacBook Pro (17-inch Mid 2010), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Aperture, FCP X

    On the iPhones...   tap Settings > iCloud. Switch Notes off then back on.


    On the Macs, open System Preferrences > iCloud


    Deselect the box next to Notes then reselect it.


    Give iCloud a few minutes to re sync the data.
