I'm running OS 10.8.4 and can't seem to get Notes on the Mac to sync with the notes of my iPhone. I've tried signing out of iCloud on both devices and this didn't work.  Here's the weird part... when I signed back in, the Notes on the Mac returned and the Notes on the iPhone returned, but neither device had the same notes.  To clarify, each device had different notes despite being signed into iCloud and having selected to sync Notes.  When I signed out of iCloud, each device was showing no notes at all.  When I signed back in, each device repopulated with it's own previous notes list, but neither synced to each other.  Everything else iCloud related seems to be working fine.  And, yes, I do only have one Apple ID and it is being used on both devices.  Flummoxed! 

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1
