Is anyone having trouble with Notes on their iPhone4?

I am using Notes on my iPhone4 and when my note/list is complete I press "done" and it saves it, but when I come back later to add to the list, only a few lines of the original list are there.  I have also tried to add to short lists, saved the added info, only to go back to the list later and the added info is missing.   Our iPhone3G is not having this problem.

Mine seems to be saving the notes properly, I created a long list and saved it, then added more and all the info was still there when I went back to it.

Notes is working properly for me also on my iPhone 4.  I've created several notes in the past and everything is still there.

My wifes iPhone 4 is acting up, when she changes a note and hits done, it says it saved it but when you go back in it didn't save it.

Apparently others are having this same issue.  I found a thread about it on the Apple Support forum.  No solution is listed.  I am no on hold with Apple.  I will post their response for you.

I had a note that mysteriously was deleted.  The Apple techie told me that it could only delete if I hit the trash can icon.  I did not do that, as far as I am aware, and would seem hard to do by mistake since done and the trash can are nowhere near each other.

Well, Apple tech support was a bit befuddled, as if they hadn't heard of the problem.  They had me backup to my itunes and do a general reset.  It seemed repaired, but I wasn't convinced because the mysterious missing notes happen after a bit of time.  Sure enough, the problem was back after a couple of hours.  I tried to call Apple again, but they were closed for the evening.  So, my 'fix' was to go to the App store and download a free app for taking notes.  We'll see how that 'fix' works.

When you are looking at the list of notes, click on "Accounts" on the top left and make sure you are only using "On My iPhone".

I loved to use Notes but I found out that you can't sync it with anything except outlook notes and I don't use Outlook. So I switched to a Free note program called "Simplenote". I like it because it automatically syncs with an HTML version you can bring up on a browser. So I can enter data on my desktop and when I start the program on my iPhone it automatically syncs or vice versa. No ads and it's free. I like it. FYI.   Smiley Wink

In the notes check the accounts menu if you have
More than one email like gmail also has a note section

Evernote is also free in the app store, and syncs to the cloud automagically (and can be accessed via the web, where you can also add/edit notes - then they sync back to the phone.

I'm having the same problem. My sister is also, but she is on a 3gs...which leads me to believe it must be a software issue and not just a iphone 4 issue.

OK.  I looked at the "Accounts" area (never noticed this before).  When I selected on my iPhone, one note showed up.  That is the note that keeps deleting itself.  The other note shows as being a Yahoo! note.  That note remains stable.  Do you have any more insight?  I don't know what is causing my first note to disappear.  Also, does the Yahoo! note access the internet everytime I update it from the phone?
