    Another question I see.

    Off means OFF,
    On means ON.

    Turning your WiFi OFF will keep it OFF until you turn it back ON (it won't magically or automatically turn back ON).

    If I remember correctly the iPhone will backup over wifi when it's connected to a network as well as connected to a charger. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I've noticed all of my backups coincide with me basically being asleep and my phone on the charger at night.

    Once every 24hrs (and if your iDevice is charging, idle and on a wifi connection).

    Example:

    If I back it up today at Noon, then it should then back-up automatically tomorrow at noon as well. Lets say I don't get home until 2pm, then as soon as I plug my iPhone to the charger it will begin backing, now it will not back-up again until the following day at or around 2pm (and so on...)
