    I had the same issue. You have to go to the wifi sync site and download the uninstaller.

    HOLY, you are my hero! What a life-saver! I have been trying to remove Wifi Sync from my iPhone 3GS ever since I downloaded it by mistake (too trigger happy with the trackpad, my husband says!). The uninstaller didn't work and I could not find anything else that did. Needless to say when I updated the phone with the latest iTunes 10.4, it ran into trouble and my phone had to be recovered. But of course, with the Wifi Sync in there, it wouldn't work. I was about to pay for a £25 Apple support ticket when I found your post. Now I do not have the pesky icon on my menu bar anymore and after a bit of a faff with iTunes, I have managed to restore my phone. Phew! Thank you, thank you.
