I have this same problem. While I haven't figured out a way to prevent the notes from being deleted yet, I did find a way to recover them. Do you have your iPhone connected to your laptop through iCloud or anything? I know you said you don't have it hooked up to iTunes, but that's not the only way. My phone wirelessly backs up to my email, so it sends my notes as emails to my address. When they get deleted, I just go online and email them back to myself so I can copy and paste them back into Notes. Huge pain in the rear, but at least I have my notes back :/ This seems to be a common issue, so hopefully someone can find a fix soon!

I do not use Cloud back up due to limited internet access, but whenever I sync my iPhone 4 to itunes, my notes are send to my email inbox and delted from my phone. This is super frustrating as there seems to be NO WAY to get them back into my phone. Only some notes are deleted, and there seems to be no rhyme or reason.
Does anyone know a simple way to prevent NOTES from syncing? (This all started a few months ago when I upgraded to iOS6 from ios4, btw)
