    Click on your phone when it's attached. Up at the top there is a list of items that are sycning. Go into the podcasts and tick the box to sync them and the option you prefer. Most recent works for me. Another thing to consider is an app. I bough Downcast and absolutely love it. Not needing iTunes to update your podcasts is well worth the couple of dollars I spent. When I first got an iPhone I thought this was going to be my favorite feature but I soon learned that I hated the way itunes handles podcast and syncs them. I much prefer the app approach.

    Plus one on buying a podcast app. I use icatcher. So much easier than dealing with iTunes and syncing.

    Podcasts don't use any data correct? only data used is during the download phase, then its no data?

    If you actually download the podcast on 3G, that's using data as well. I try to download podcasts on a wifi connection as much as possible. I remember streaming a bunch one month and I went over my 2 gigs of data. Those things sure are data hogs.

    Yes this is very true.. you have to be careful. I still have an unlimited data plan but I get throttled if I go to high so I also pay attention to data usage
