    Will we be able to sync certain playlists like on iTunes with WiFi sync? I'm not wanting to put all of my music on the phone, so I've made a playlist to where I can just drag the whole playlist. It'd be great if we could select certain playlists that way whenever I choose WiFi Sync on the phone it'll just update what I've added. Anyone know?

    Thanks.

    It works just like as if you are on a USB connection.

    So how do you set up what you will be syncing? Through the sync homepage on iTunes?

    You set it up the first time you connect the USB.

    If you are talking about syncing just certain playlists, it's the same as it was before, under the Music tab select "Selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres" and select what you want. Use the checkbox on the Summary page mentioned earlier to turn on WiFi sync that way your iPhone always shows up in iTunes just like it's connected via USB.

    How come I have to plug it into the computer so it recognizes the fact that the computer is available for WiFi syncing? I have it checked that I wanna use the computer for WiFi syncing, but say I restarted my computer. If I want to WiFi sync again, I have to plug in my iPt4g so it recognizes the iPod, then when I unplug it, I can WiFi sync still I close iTunes or turn off my computer.

    Is this how it was intended to work?

    So, I got my playlist checked and it's currently syncing it. If I add new music to the playlist can I just click Sync on the phone and it'll update it?

    I can tell this poor 3GS can barely handle the wifi sync in the background. It's lagging pretty bad. I'm sure the 4S will run great with it in the background.

    You only have to do it once to pair it with the machine.
