Hours after installing ios 6 on my 4S my notes vanished. I tried deleting icloud acct > erase on iPhone and reinstalling iCloud w original apple id with no success. It doesn't even let me select 'On' for notes, it prompts me instead to create new iCloud email. I refuse to create another iCloud email cause I fear I will lose notes. For some reason my restore point right before upgrading to ios6 doesn't show up. The only pre ios6 restore point I have is from April. I have very highly sensitive material in ALL my notes and this type of dependency on 'tech' is what scares me about the future. I finally gave a shot at creating a new iCloud email and finally I was able to turn on notes. "0" notes now. I've been using the notes app since 2007. I've stored sensitive material over the years to have it ALL erased b/c apple now thinks that iCloud is better than mMe. Please help.
