iTunes recognizes my iPhone 4. But something strange is happening. On the phone itself, it indicates that it's synced thru wifi nightly. But, 1. when I click on iPhone in source list, it shows screen for "Set up your iPhone" and wants to set up from a backup that is weeks old and 2. it's not syncing playlists that I've indicated to sync in iTunes.


FWIW, the reason my backup on my MacBook Air is so old is I've been backing up through iCloud.


Any suggestions?

iPhone 4, iOS 5
