Next, the device offers to immediately sync with the Exchange server. If you choose not
to sync at this time, you can turn on calendar and contact syncing later in Settings >
Mail, Contacts, and Calendars. By default, Exchange ActiveSync pushes new data to
your device as it arrives on the server. If you prefer to fetch new data on a schedule or
to only pull new data manually, use Settings > Fetch New Data to change the settings.
