    Just noticed after I updated to IOS6, many of my bookmarks did not come thru. I have some, but not all of them. Anyone have any idea, how, or if I can retrieve these?
    Thanks

    Welcome to our forums. First have you backed up your iPad either via iTunes to a computer or to iCloud. If so there is a good chance to can recover them by syncing either backup. . Hope that helps

    I had backed it up to ITunes just prior to updating to the new IOS. I will give that a try. Thanks.
    Just thought it was odd that some came thru, and others did not. And wasn't sure if anyone else had the same issue.

    With any upgrade data can go missing that is why it is essential to back up first iTunes keeps multiple back ups in the computer so one can retrieve older backups if required. My only advice do not back up to both iCloud and iTunes as data can be lost or duplicated.

    I woke up this morning to no bookmarks. I did backup, but is was several days ago when I updated to ios 6. So now would I have to restore my iphone to get my bookmarks back? Then I lose all my data since the iTunes sync?

    I've had the same problem. My bookmarks made it through the transition to the new OS but I plugged in my ipad last night and now all bookmarks are gone. Not only that but I've tried resaving some and they won't save. Any ideas?

    I had the same problem, but a reset sorted it out (holding down the Home and Off buttons) and all my Bookmarks returned!

    Hooray! Resetting worked like a champ and now my bookmarks are back. Any idea why they went away in the first place?
