I think I understand how syncing works and have intermittnet luck with using it.  I have plugged in the iphone selected sync over wifi, synced everthing but when I unplug my phone (iphone 5, using io6.1.2) the device disappears from the column on the left in itunes and I can't sync wirelessly.

Any ideas??

    you have to also turn wirless sync on the phone, settings > general > wifi sync

    Do you actually turn it on; where you suggest allows me to sync but there is where it can't find my computer.

    Wi-Fi syncing

    1. Open iTunes
    2. To set up Wi-Fi syncing, connect your iOS device to your computer with the included USB cable. Select your device under Devices on the left-hand side.
    3. In the Summary tab, select "Sync with this [device] over Wi-Fi".
    4. Whenever the computer and the iOS device are on the same network, the iOS device will appear in iTunes, and you can sync it. The iOS device will sync automatically when all of the following are true:
      • The iOS device is plugged in to power
      • iTunes is open on the computer
      • The iOS device and the computer are on the same Wi-Fi network
    5. While the iOS device appears in the left-hand column of iTunes, you can select the content tabs and configure sync options.
    6. Click Apply or Sync to sync the iOS device.

    Should I not be able to sync without being plugged in to power?
