    Maybe a real-world example will help. Picture real clouds (internet) with real rain (data) in them. When it rains on me (syncs data), then I'm still wet (have my data), even when I go inside (lose signal).
    WOW, how long have you been waiting to use that analogy?

    Believe it or not, I just thought of it when reading CGK's reply.

    Like it? I know it will fall apart upon closer inspection like most analogies do, but it was fun anyway.

    Your phone will not go blank as soon as the signal drops out, I don't understand why people can't grasp this.
    Thank you very much. That is what I had originally assumed and is the only rational/reasonable operation I could imagine. It's just that people seemed to be declaring exactly the opposite, and I would have found that unacceptable. My only difficulty is that I do not use google or any other internet system to store my personal data -- just my phone and my computer. Hopefully there will be something equivalent to the POS (I hate that double-meaning abbreviation) synch operation.
