    Is this correct, mine is doing this, thought it had to be plugged in for this to happen?

    Under your bed.
    Is your iTunes set to automatically sync?

    Mine's working fine, not sure what else might be causing it.

    My iPhone was syncing for a couple hours the other day after unplugging it - obviously sync had hung up somehow. I went into Settings - iTunes WiFi Sync and Canceled Sync to stop it. Hasn't recurred.

    This worked for me.

    This didn't work for me (I am using a PC). What I did was go into iTunes. And where it showed that my iPhone was connected (as if I plugged it in), on the Summary tab I un-checked "Sync with this iPhone over Wi-Fi". Then iTunes connected to my iPhone wirelessly, then disconnected my iPhone from iTunes.

    I'm not having that issue with my MacBook. I am able to sync if I initiate it from the context menu even when it's not connected to power, but it only automatically starts the sync if it's plugged into a power source.
