    Were you ever able to find a solution to this?  This is happening to me.

    Do you not sync the notes to outlook or another source like iCloud. Think it's time you should

    I had an important note in the notes app on my iPad.  i deleted this note from my Yahoo mail account to keep from prying eyes, after all my notes suddenly showed up in the mail client.  I set up syncing through iCloud also at some point.  Little did I realize that this note would also disappear from my iPad after I opened Notes on the iPad.  It was there briefly, long enough for me to breathe a sigh of relief.  Then it disappeared right before my eyes.  If I have previously synced the iPad with my iMac using the USB cable, is there any way to recover the note?  I also think that I have the iMac to sync to the cloud.  Need to check wehen I get home.  Is it possible to view notes created on the iPad on the computer you sync the iPad with?

    Also would it be possible to use Time Machine to go back to the day before I deleted the note and recover the note that way?

    No, Apple does not treat Notes as an important application or information to protect.  It is way to easy to loose this information.  I recommend that you don't use the NOTES application and go back to a pencil and paper until Apple at least gives us a good snyc and back up for NOTES.  It should at least be as well done as contacts we all understand that we will never loose our music, but our contacts are iffy and notes are blown away without a thought.  Please at least give us a way to print them so we can type them back in. This would be an old way of protecting our data, but better than what we have today.

    I lost my entire comedy routine I wrote on the iphone. In the middle of looking at the file it disappeared without asking for confirmation that the file would be deleted, or any other such note. I have nothing to laugh at since I lost my entire audition. I wish I could get some action on this to help too.

    I just have this problem and find no solution to it either.
    It seems the only way (exept the pencil and paper-alternative) is to email the note to yourself and print it out.

    Guys, if you don't mind, could you please upload your notes databases to me for inspection? I guess I can recover these for you, but I need to see to know for sure.

    Please check http://iphonerecoveryonline.com/, choose "lost notes", and intructions will be given.

    Yes, it should work the same way. If you have such a problem, please try it, and if the outcome is not as expected, there will be a button to report it, and I'll check your database manually.

    This is not a solution - it's a work-around necessitated by function failure.  Notes is an important funtion to me, and it not longer functions on my iPhone and on my iPad. This is unacceptable.
