Wireless syncing feature supported by WP7 OS is a very convenient thing. If you have Zune software installed on your PC, you can easily send files from your PC to your smartphone without any cables. If you want to use this feature, you will need to do a little setting up first.

The first step to activating the wireless syncing is getting your PC with Zune software installed on it ready, finding an available Wi-Fi network and fetching your phone. The smartphone and the PC should be connected to the same wireless network – otherwise, you won’t be able to establish a connection between them. Having your own Wi-Fi network at home solves the wireless syncing setting up problem perfectly well. There’s also another important condition. Wireless syncing requires your phone to be connected to an AC power outlet – without this nothing will work out.
When you are setting up syncing for the first time, connect your smartphone to the Wi-Fi network and also connect it to your PC with a USB cable. Wait for the device to show up in Zune and go to the software’s settings menu. Choose your smartphone in the top panel and click ‘Wireless sync’. Then just click on ‘Setup wireless sync’ and verify your choice of the home network that your smartphone and your PC are connected to. When the setup is over, your phone will sync with your PC automatically every 10 minutes.
