    Notes on iphone deleted
    Hi there,

    Ok so, I've always kept my notes on the iphone and have never backed them up, I have about 200 of various bits and pieces that are fairly important to me.

    I noticed when I accidently opened my mail on my macbook that it synched the notes. I didn't want them on my laptop so I deleted, not knowing that when I synched my phone...what happens, all my notes have been deleted.

    Totally my fault I know, is there any way I can get these back now?

    I've looked in mail under trash but I'm afraid they've gone.

    I did a little search and I've come across expensive extractors, Is this the only way?

    Any help would be great.

    If you haven't resynched your iPhone since you lost your notes it is possible/probable that iTunes has a backup of your previous synch available. If so, you should be able to restore to it. Before you try turn off automatic synching in device preferences (which is where you will also be looking for the backup).

    you know I think I synched it again after. so the sync available is the one that wiped it in the first place... I think thats the only solution right?

    I think it only maintains a backup of the previous synch (worth double-checking) so if you have synched again since you lost your notes you have probably overwritten the backup file.
    You might check some of the jailbreak APPs (I'm not really familiar with any of this). But I know there are APPs available to do a finder examination of your iPhone once it has been jailbroken. Don't know if the notes would still be on the device (but again worth a google search at least).
    Sorry, I can't help any more than this.

    I'm assuming you don't have a Time Machine backup available.
