I own an iPad and iPhone and use MobileMe. My contacts, calendar, mail and iDisk all sync properly but I can't get Notes to work.

On my iPhone Notes, I have the option of selecting the following accounts:

From my PC
MobileMe
My 3 different email addresses

I have placed my notes under both "From my PC" and "MobileMe."

My iPad doesn't even give me the option to select the various accounts in the same way the iPhone does.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I couldn't find any other topics that are having problems similar to mine.

HP, Windows Vista

    Syncing of notes through email is an iOS 4.0 feature which is not yet supported on the iPad. So, you can sync notes between your mail.app on your computer and your iPhone through the cloud, but you'll need to sync your notes to your iPad through iTunes until the new software is released.

    Do we have any idea when apple plans on releasing the new OS for iPad?

    It's really annoying to have capabilities on my iPhone that I can only wish I had on the iPad.

    The official timeframe is Fall of this year, which could mean anytime between now and December 20.

    Is that something Apple officially stated or just a rumor?

    As always, thanks for your help

    Apple said, "Fall" in the last Keynote speech. So, it's official but vague.

    I purchased my ipad at a Apple store and the salesman sold me the mobileme convincing me that everything including Notes would sync in the clouds! I still cant understand why we're paying for something that doesn't yet work. This is unacceptable. I just want my NOTES to seamlessly sync between my iphone, ipad and mobileme just like everybody else. Is this too much to ask or expect? Besides, isnt what thousands of paying mobileme subscribers expect.
    I want my NOTES to be identical on all platforms and not have to check my mail accounts. As far as my Notes taken with my Ipad, they don't sync anywhere and spent endless hours trying to figure it out only to find out that the sync feature is not yet available for the Notes on my ipad. Thanks Apple! You succeeded to mislead me and taking my money in advance. How long do we have to wait for this to be resolved? We have the right to get a truthful answer and don't appreciate being fooled.

    There are quite a few notes type apps

    I use simplenote which is excellent

    It syncs almost instantaniously and will work with my iPad which can't sync notes yet and a 2G iPhone that will never be able to sync notes. It also works on an old CRT iMac running tiger that possibly can't use notes

    I am shocked that this was posted in late 2010 and now a year later, notes still won't sync from ipad through mobileme.  disappointed!  was on a trip and had school notes on my ipad since I didn't take my laptop, and now it won't sync.  so disapointed!  any suggestions (other than copy them over by hand?)

    Seems that it's working for other people with iPads running iOS 4.
