Default SGS3 Accounts & Sync Settings

When I got my S3 a few days ago there were settings in Accounts and sync to disable background data or enable it on wifi only.
These options have vanished, now see just the list of accounts to sync. I am unable to disable background data - any suggestions?

Silly me! That's not where the setting was, it's in settings, data usage then menu! I'll get the hang of ICS yet!

I could kiss you! I had the SGS3 syncing fine, I'd never seen those settings under data usage, then I installed a battery saver app which switched off those settings. Couldn't find any answers with Google as to why my gmail account said "sync disabled", until I found your post. Thankyou!
