So i had an super mega important phone number stored in my notes, my parents gave it to me right before they left to Israel(meaning if i lose it, i'm doomed). So i kept it in the notes, synced my iPod the next day then restored, problem was that i never backed up that number Please Register or Log in to view images. So i restore again, this time from a backup, once the restore is done, i go into notes and i see the number!!! Just thought i'd post my success story, backup saved my life. EDIT: What i'm trying to show you here is that iPod backups is a really nice feature that Apple added.
