    Hi all

    I upgraded to an iphone 4 from an iphone 3g and set the new phone up in Itunes as a new phone rather than setting it up from the 3g backup. There was a lot of clutter I didn't want.

    However, I would like to get the NOTES that were backed up from the old phone onto my new phone. Is there a way to only pull the notes from the backup?

    In your basement
    If you are on a mac, you can try to sync the notes to from your 3G, and then sync the notes from to your iP4.

    if you are on a windows box, I have no idea? Do notes sync to Outlook or something?

    seems like there should be a better way to this

    Hmm. The notes that are in my Mail app are actually older than the ones on my phone. It seems sort of vague if the Mail app is where the iPhone downloads notes to.

    if you just setup a new phone, you have to go into itunes ("info" tab) and turn on note syncing to have the same thing in Mail.

    I tried it and it seems like a scam. The free version only let me open 4 files and it did work for that limited task. Then I was prompted to pay more for a home version and it only let me get the same four files. Then I was prompted to pay even more for a pro version (I chose not to)
