    Hi,

    I changed my iphone 4 with a better condition one and i got back to factory settings with the old one. But the thing is i forgot to backup my notes and the last time i backed it up was on 20st December 2012. But i need the data from 23rd of January 2013.

    So is it possible to recover notes without any backup or they're just gone?

    Assuming you used your iCloud account to create your notes, they should be there when you reattach your account. You can check if they're there right now by going to iCloud.com and entering you AppleID.

    Well, your notes should be in some account somewhere. Perhaps a Gmail or Yahoo account? Try adding any accounts you had on your old phone to the new one.

    Go into "Settings">"Mail, Contacts, Calendars">"Add Account" on your iPhone and add the account. That should get the notes, if they're there, onto your phone.

    Go into the same place where you added the account, but instead of pressing "add account", click on the gmail account you added, and make sure that "notes" is turned on.
