How to get Missing Notes back onto iPhone

And now this doesn't work. Looking for an alternative to iPhone Notes. It's too fickle and not dependable.

Wow, this worked.

If all your notes are missing from your iPhone, and you have a lot of notes in iCloud (I have ~25), in order for those to reappear on your iPhone, your iPhone MUST be connected to WiFi.

Once all those notes reappear, and you're only adding a note here and there, they will sync just fine when you're not connected to WiFi.

So bottom line, if all your notes are gone, connect to WiFi and they should reappear on your phone.

It took escalation through 4 technicians at Apple to resolve this issue today.
