    OS 5.1--several times in last 3-4 weeks all of my notes have been erased or just disappeared? I have rebuilt o.s. and restored the o.s. etc. I did a reboot of the ipad2. Am getting tired of and don't trust entering my notes. Anyone have a cure for this prob.????????

    Just a desperate thought: try clicking on NOTES at the top of the screen. It happened to me once and turned out I was apparently on an empty note.

    Are you syncing your notes with an account? Is there an Accounts button above the list of Notes? Witch may happen if you have both local notes and an account, or more than one account syncing with Notes.

    Are you syncing with an account? Check your Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars, then tap on your account. If it lists Notes and it's turned on then you notes are being synced to an email folder in you account.

    If your account is automatically deleting them, they will go away each time you sync with it. However, you may be able to find them in your Deleted folder in email.

    Otherwise, I don't know what it happening.

    I tend to recommend Evernote as a better note taking solution. It has more options, and automatically syncs online and with your computer (if you load the computer app. The basic account is free as are all the apps.

    Twerp poet I think I found the answer- password on main comp. for iCloud was different than on iPad for some strange reason.
    Also I went into settings for iCloud on ipad2 and changed "push" to "fetch". My notes seem to be staying now. I'll test it for a day or two.
    Thanks for your help

    That could be it. Don't trust anything important to it until you are sure.

    I still recommend that you look at Evernote. I think you'll like the what you see.

    TWERPPOET-- Looks like the prob. is fixed this am.-all notes have stayed. looking at "evernote" and it seems pretty good, but like anything new, it takes getting used to.
    Have a great day and thanks.
