    Hello Everyone,

    I just got my first android phone, a samsung galaxy s4 and love it. I have been able to set it up as I want for the most part. One thing I cant figure out though, how do you set google account sync to only sync over wifi? I know you can go into the data section and choose which apps can update over wifi, but I don't see one for google account sync. Is it called google services or something? In the google plus I was able to set it to update photos and videos over wifi, but what about the calendar, app data, drive etc.?

    Thanks for the help!

    I don't believe there's a setting in stock Android for you to do what you want. My suggestion would be to put a sync toggle on your homescreen so that you can turn background sync on and off whenever you want. The stock Power Control widget has a sync toggle, as does my favorite toggle widget, Power Toggles.
