Customer Question
For some unknown reason...

For some unknown reason, my iphone6 deleted all the info I had in 'Notes'. I tried to remember all the stuff I had in there and spent a few hours typing it in. Then, when I looked at it a few minutes ago, l saw it's all gone AGAIN!!! What is going on with my phone?? How can I get this stuff back??

Technician's Assistant: What OS X (Operating System, e.g. Sierra, El Capitan, Yosemite, etc.) or iOS are you running?

IOS 11.0.1-- which had been updated a few days ago

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

No

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

Nothing. I'm pretty dense about this

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

I just want my original 'Notes' stuff back.

nothing to add. just trying to figure out why my stuff disappeared and how can I get it back. This was all in the 'Notes'

What accounts do you have on your phone?

What’s going on? I’ve put in all the required info for my credit card. Why does it keep saying there’s an error?? This is all accurate and correct info.
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 7 months ago

It is hard to say. Do you have a different card you can use? That is my best suggestion. I don't handle payment... sorry

Let's just do this by emailing back and forth since my credit card won't work again on this site. So can you tell me what I need to do to fix this
Customer reply replied 7 months ago

Is there a check on AOL?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No. Just on iCloud
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 7 months ago

uncheck icloud and then input some notes. give it a few moments and see if they stick. If they do turn on iCloud notes again and merge the notes.

It won’t stay on ‘on my phone ‘. It keeps reverting back to iCloud. How can I make the checkmark stay on it?
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 7 months ago

go ahead and restart your phone hold the home button and power button. Then test notes again.

Still there. Thanks. But how can I prevent it from happening again? Why did they get deleted in the first place??
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 7 months ago

It was a glitch. I have seen it before. It is an odd one. Next time restart the phone before trying anything. They should all stay that way.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
