Lately, my notes haven't been saving. I'll make a new note, click on Done, go back to my notes page, and it isn't there.

The last time I did something with the notes were a few weeks ago when I used the iPhone PC suite to sync some notes from my computer.

Was going to suggest permissions check - but then saw this thread that looks like it might help.

I would suggest renaming the folder rather than deleting though - just call it NotesOld - then I imagine what will happen is a new one gets generated when you next launch Notes, with default perms and whatever else may be hosed right now ...

Probably a good idea to backup any notes that are crucial to you before trying any of this of course.

I saw that the Notes directory's permission were set to 0755. I changed them to 0777 (after backing up my notes.db file) and all the notes were deleted (as expected), and my new ones are saving!

I guess I could copy and paste the old ones via email or something...
