you're not that smart are you?
quote from random site by YOUR search:
From iTunes 10.5+

Connect the iOS device to the computer
Open iTunes and click on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch from the left side of the window
Click on the “Summary” tab in iTunes
Scroll down and click the checkbox next to “Sync with this iPhone over Wi-Fi” (or iPad or iPod touch)
already see whats wrong here? no? - then read post 1 again.

Have you tried going into Settings/General/iTunes Wi-Fi Sync and messing around with the settings? Seems like you should be able to enable something from here.

Another alternative (I don't know if you're specifically trying to sync with your comp or if you just want a wireless sync) is to go into your Settings/iCloud/Storage & Backup tab and enable that. Good luck.

No it can't be done from settings-general thingy..

All I can imagine is that iTunes just switches on and off.. So it has to be possible through Ifile where in u enable it manually by going into some plist file..

Honestly, I don't know how to but logically very much feasible.. :)

Will try to find too and will post if I find something out..
