If you do nothing, your Windows Phone will try to initiate a sync on its own. After the initial configuration Windows Phone will use the so called “push mode” and will sync new data as soon as it becomes available. However, if the phone is unable to connect to AkrutoSync for some reason, the phone will turn the “push mode” off and try to sync approximately every 30 to 60 minutes. The most common reason the phone is unable to connect to AkrutoSync is that the phone turns off Wi-Fi when its screen is locked and the phone is not plugged in to charge. Even after it turns Wi-Fi off, the phone will still try to connect, but connection attempts will fail.
If you have chosen to sync over the Internet and leave AkrutoSync running, the phone will connect and sync (either in push mode or periodically) without any intervention on your part.
If you have chosen to sync over your home network, leave AkrutoSync running, and plug the phone in to charge overnight, the phone will connect and sync some time after you plug it in. This way it can sync nightly without any intervention on your part.
