I don't mind my notes syncing to my mail accounts but how can I stop them from completely disappearing from the app on my phone??

iPhone 4, iOS 6.0.1

    Is there a download for the notes?

    All my notes disappeared and didn't seem to be backed up to the cloud.

    I have been reading that lots of people have had this problem.... Seems to be an apple anomaly!

    Someone said they found a new folder, entitled Notes, had been created in their email and all his notes were there as emails!

    I got quite excited and went to my registered email via my PC.

    Disappointment! Nothing there.

    However, I went to another email.

    And there was a new Notes folder and inside, all my missing notes!

    I'm very happy and if I can find my way back, lol, I will give my heartfelt thanks to the person that passed on the tip and I hope this helps someone else.

    my notes keep disappearing too on my iphone but they do exist in my yahoo email account (notes folder) - seems like the iphone is the master that updates the computer. How do we get our cell notes back. cell phoine is the one I use when I am outside my home. The notes folder does not appear in the cell phone email..only on your computer.

    i found all my notes in various mail accounts. so, the notes are absent in NOTES, but these are to find in your email accounts.

  • lindafrommiami Level 1 Level 1 (0 points) can you get the notes from your email account back into your Notes?

    I'd like to know this too


    Also, any recommendations about a really simple usable alternative notes app for ipad

    An Apple Specialist told me the best way to keep your notes is to sync them into I Cloud.  You can easily move them into I Cloud notes by setting up your email account where your notes are located and I Cloud account side by side on your screen and clicking and dragging them over to the I Cloud notes.  I haven't lost any notes since I did this.  And it was a fairly quick process of retrieving my notes back to my phone.

    I accidentally discovered that my disappeared notes were on my computer in a yahoo folder called Notes (a folder which does NOT appear on either my iPhone or Ipad). So that is something, but I wanted them on the Iphone, not the computer. WHY should they randomly disappear in the first place? All of mine (except one) from Aug. 24 to Oct. 4 disappeared. I do not want to pay Apple $19 to ask this question, but would like to hear from anyone who knows the answer.

    OMG you have no idea... I have been on these message boards and searching for help for this for hours.  I just about threw in the towel and then came across your advice.  I looked in another email account on my phone (one my phone is registered with, NOT icloud) and low and behold there is a folder there now with all my lost notes!!!!  This just saved me a huge amount of trouble as I had important data in there that took a whole day to collect.  Thank you.

    I was able to find my missing notes as well -- in my yahoo account under "NOTES" folder. But the original problem hasn't been solved yet. Why are my notes automatically being deleted from my ipad? I tried syncing my ipad in the icloud, but i wasn't able to retrieve my notes from my mail.. I just hope that my current notes will not disappear again.. Currently though, I am now putting my notes in an application called "OneNote" which I downloaded and it's an ipad version of the windows OneNote application.. I think it is safer to put your notes there, unless you want them to automatically transfer to the mail as usual.. By the way, the missing notes occured recently when I updated to iO7.. I hope APPLE will fix this..

    Me too!  Important customer visit notes disappeared and I can't find them in my email tree like people recommended.  What the heck?  Happened since iOS 7 upgrade. This pretty much *****.
