    I've read that from 3.x firmware, mobile me users have the OTA syncronization also for notes.
    While i have OTA sync for contacts, calendar, mail ... i've serious problem syncing notes.
    Any hints ?

    Notes on the iPhone get transferred back to your Mac to your email app. They will show up under reminders. They can also get synced back to your iPhone. There is a setting in iTunes to enable notes syncing.

    Yes, thanks for the reply, i know that.
    I have problems syncronizing over the air notes with my iPhone.
    Actually i only can sync them connecting via USB the iPhone to my Mac.
    Seems there's no way to syncro OTA.
    Any more hints, please ?
    (I've flagged in iTunes the syncronizing notes tab)

    This is the only way to do it. Notes do not sync via MobileMe.

    In Snow Leopard, there IS a setting to sync notes OTA to mobileme. See attached screenshot Anyway, to the OP- mine works haphazardly too. Half the time the notes sync ota, and half the time it doesn't sync until I sync it up to itunes. They must not have worked out all of the kinks yet. But it's definitely not just you.

    Yeah, it doesn't work. I think that just backs them up to MobileMe just as preferences do.

    I think the OTA sync of notes is only for other Macs and PCs where you have MobileMe configured and not for the iPhone.
