Manual Exchange Syncing

image Ok so here ‘s just a quick thing I found out just now with a little bit of playing around. It might be obvious, but it certainly mystified me for a while. So there ‘s this little setting under Settings “> Fetch New Data “> Advanced where you can tell your Exchange account to only sync manually. This is fine for Mail with its refresh button, but what about Contacts and Calendar?

The key here seems to be just loading the programs up, which seems to start the sync process. The thing is, since you don ‘t initiate the thing, there ‘s no easy way to tell (AFAIK) when your sync is done. So beware of times when you ‘ve done a lot of work on your desktop calendar but haven ‘t opened Calendar on the iPhone. Maybe leave Calendar/Contacts on for a few minutes to make sure everything gets downloaded.

That ‘s all for now, folks. Hope that helps a few of you out there looking to save a bit of juice. I like Nuevasync for push PIM with Google, but I don ‘t need contacts and events updated live. My life ‘s just not that fast 😀
