    Hi guys,

    So i have about 20 notes on my iphone and I assume they should appear on my mac via iCloud. Also, I made some test notes on my mac and they don't appear on my iphone either. I have notes checked in the iCloud both on my mac and my iphone... Any one else experience this problem?

    You might try deleting your iCloud on your phone and resigning in
    That worked for me

    Hmm, still nothing... The phone and mac notes are acting completely separate right now.

    You have them all in iCloud right?

    I believe so, the notes section under icloud is checked in both my mac and my iphone. I expected it to work like the reminders app (which works perfectly; anything created on my iphone shows up on my mac and vice versa).

    Make sure you have the proper account setup on your phone.

    I had an issue with notes not syncing properly - or rather, some did and some didn't. I checked the arrow button with 'Accounts' - in the Notes app - on it and found that some notes were on my iPad folder rather than in the iCloud folder, which is where I'm assuming they need to be to sync. I copied them across to the iCloud folder and deleted the idevice folder contents.... It's all working perfectly now. Perhaps this is what the poster above means?
