Is anyone else having a problem with the automatic icloud backups?  I've been able to get the wifi sync to work (very cool btw) but I still have to MANUALLY run the icloud backup from my iphone.  Even when my phone is locked, connected to wifi and connected to the charger by my bed, it still wont run the automatic backup for whatever reason.


Any ideas?

iPhone 4, Windows 7

    I'm having the same issue, looked today and my last backup was made on the 16th October. I expected my last backup to have been the 17th, as this is the last time it was connected to power. Any ideas?

    Automatic backup does not work fotme either : I am sure that I follow the instructions (iPhone plugged in, locked on, Wi-fi network on…) but the first night it did not made it's backup.

    It seems that I am not the only one who has got this problem (I have to backup manually witch is not such a big deal but gives a lack of confidence with the backup process).

    Can you help ?

    Thank you.
