    I've searched on the forum and can't seem to find an answer.

    I'm using mobileme on an iPhone 4 and my windows PC. Syncs to outllok no problem with mobileme control panel on windows.

    I have the notes on my iPhone set to sync and the sync nicely with outlook. Is there anyway I can see these on me.com. I often use the web browser to access my account in work when I haven't got my phone handy?

    Are they stored in iDisk somewhere?

    That's what I thought... But that folder is empty!

    Any ideas?

    If you've got note sync selected via iTunes you will have 2 separate notes folders on your device - one for On my PC and one for MobileMe. I noticed this when notes weren't being synced between iPad and iPhone - by default all notes were being created in the On my PC folder (couldn't work out how to change to this default). If this is the case copy all notes from pc folder to the MobileMe one, deselect note sync in iTunes then delete all notes from the On my PC folder which will then disappear. Notes will hopefully sync to me.com and to outlook via mm.

    Hope this works for you

    I do have this! I can't believe I never noticed this before. I thought they were getting synced to outlook by mobileme but actually it was iTunes doing it!

    Once again I may be having a senior moment but I can't now figure out how to copy the notes from the PC folder to the mobileme folder... Is there a way to do this on iPhone?

    I used the hi-tech approach of SELECT ALL, COPY, switch to mm notes folder, create new note and PASTE, then delete the original for each note. Couldn't find a quicker way

    Found that as well but I really need to preserve the date on the notes and unfortunately this creates a new note with todays date. Don't think there is any other way.
