    I use my iPhone notes a lot. I even have notes from
    my last Iphone. Recently the notes have been disappearing. After some research I found that apparently the new iPhone Os7 deletes them and sends them to email. This can't be right can it? Is it a bug ? What good are notes that are sent to email?

    Uh, that's not right. Doesn't happen to me. I've never heard of Notes emailing stuff except back in the olden days of iOS4 or 3 maybe when notes were stored in Mail.

    Maybe swipe back 3 times and make sure you are viewing all the notes on the phone?

    That has always happened to me on all the previous OS versions too. Fairly randomly and for no apparent reason. Some notes disappear, some get duplicated. Some generate an email every time I update a shopping list (for example) and others never do. I have never figured out why on earth anyone would want their notes sent to email. If I wanted to email myself a note, I would generate it within mail.

    Oh, I think the key to the disappearing notes is this: Once a note pops up in your email in-box, just ignore it. It stays there forever. If you open or delete it in "mail," then the note will be erased from your phone.
