    I’m assuming you mean over Wi-Fi? Have you rebooted your iPhone since then and restarted iTunes? That always seems to do the trick for me.

    I was trying to sync with the iPhone cable..I had bluetooth off and wifi on my macbook off because I use ethernet to get on the net.
    I had never tried syncing over wifi..so I just turned on wifi and bluetooth on my phone and wifi on my macbook and it started syncing..not sure why iTunes didn't see it when connected by the cable?
    I did try rebooting the phone and restarted iTunes and no syncing before I turned everything else on, weird.
    thanks for the help.

    If using a Mac I usually reboot both devices. That cures the wifi sync issues. If not, after reboots plugin iOS device to start iTunes and check that the Wifi Sync is checked on the summary screen.

    I've had quite a bit of trouble with cables so I always suspect them first. Glad to help. That's what this place is all about.
