    When I connected my iphone, the notes don’t come up. What do I do now?

    • Hi Betty. CopyTrans Contacts should be able to detect and display your iPhone notes. In order for us to help you troubleshoot the issue, please contact our support team at the following email address: copytrans@copytrans.net.

    Betty’s right, my notes don’t come up either.

    • Hi Alex, have you enabled your iPhone notes to sync to a cloud account such as iCloud or your Gmail/Yahoo account? In either case, CopyTrans Contacts should be able to see your notes. Be sure to contact me directly at: copytrans@coptyrans.net and I will help you sort this out.

      Kind regards,
