    Does iTunes have to be running in order to do OTA sync?

    I don't see why it would...OTA means Over The Air so I would assume you would either download it via 3G or if you had WiFi on on your phone. That's how OTA updates work for Android.

    Wireless sync, that is.

    Ah sorry I saw OTA and thought of system updates automatically. I have no clue but I would assume the iPhone would be able to start up iTunes, you know the same way it can when its plugged in.

    Mostly OTA are on WiFi unless the files is like 20mb or so, I had like 5 android phones and it would let download on 3g but Damn it will kill half of battery a long time and sometimes fail, so I'm guessing WiFi is a better choice

    Yeah on my thunderbolt they work amazing on 4G but I usually used WiFi if I could.

    Yes, iTunes has to be running for the wireless sync to work.

    I know, right? Sometimes it seems like 90% of the posts here are bots putting random phrases together. (Maybe Siri on a bad day?)
