Solution Omega: While holding iPhone in left hand and laptop in the other, slowly twirl on one foot for three complete revolutions. Hop twice, then say "Apple is the new Microsoft" three times. Set the iPhone on top of the laptop, do a pirouette, and your devices should now be synced.

(But you know, I wouldn't mind if this were the only solution needed and it reliably worked.)

Thanks a lot – switched off notes in my iPhone and it deleted the lot – of course they did not come back because IT WAS NOT SYNCED!!! Dumbass

D Reynolds, with you on that. Lost a couple of days figuring out how to solve this. Annoyed!
And unsafe how long it will stay working.
Reliability was a Apple thing, looks like it's gone…
Really hope that this and many other this get on track, as they were suppose to be.

i can't go to Settings -> iCloud in my iphone because it is grayed out!
I have not been able to figure out why,or how to fix that!
help anyone?

Dorothy – re: Option Number 5, when I turn off notes in iCloud, it warns me that all notes on my phone will be deleted. If I do this, turn my phone off and then back on again, and then turn on notes, will all my deleted notes reappear? I don't want to lose my iCloud notes. Thanks.
