    So here is what happened. I created a Note called fileA. It was on iCloud and I also have an iPhone on iCloud. Here is the sequence of events:

    fileA is updated to v2 on iPhone and Mac OSX
    I backup and sell my iPhone
    My Mac OSX disconnects from iCloud (signed out)
    fileA is updated to v3 on Mac OSX (this contains really important information)
    I purchase a new iPhone and restore from the backup in step 2
    I sign into iCloud on my iPhone, fileA is a v2
    I sign into iCloud on Mac OSX., fileA is at v2
    At the end of the day, I've lost v3 on my Mac and iPhone.

    What do I do??

    Thanks in advance.

    Is your computer backed up locally? You should be able to retrieve v3 from the backup using Time Machine.
