I kept searching for more info on this but I found nothing. In my Settings/iCloud - Notes are off. I didn't make a @me.com email address. Still I did some testing yesterday, I completely erased the iphone, and then restored from iCloud. Several times (I did many tests) and each time the Notes were restored back. One test I did, was to add some new lines in a note, after a new back-up was made. So the new lines were not in that backup. So as expected, when I restored from that iCloud backup, the new lines from the note were not there. Only the notes in the backup were restored. Can someone confirm this ?
