iOS 8.0.1 Came with Serious Problems like Loss of Cellar Reception and Disability of Touch ID

    Most of my notes have disappeared with update to ios 8.0.2

    1. That is disappointing. And did you lose notes only, no other data like contacts and photos? If the lost notes are important for you, you can still recover them.
      1. Have backed up iPhone before update: Restore lost notes from backup with iTunes, this is free.
      2. No backup: You need an iPhone data recovery tool. Free try this one: http://www.tenorshare.com/products/iphone-data-recovery-win.html
      Try the free download before register, if you can preview the lost notes from the free trial, then register. Or you should not register because the data can't be previewed is not recoverable.
