Forgive me for this thread: Syncing Kindle with iPhone/iPad

Asking forgiveness because I know there are already a ton of threads related to this topic and as I read through a few - couldn't get a handle on where this is right now, so new thread.

I use to be able to sync to the furthest page read by using DiskAid and side loading books manually on my Kindle and iDevice. With the advent of SEND TO KINDLE app - my understanding is that this method is no longer necessary.

Here's the question: I used Send to Kindle app to send a NON-AMAZON book to my iPhone 4 today and then opened the same book on my Kindle, it did not recognize how far I had read on the iPhone. Am I doing something wrong? Did I miss some setting that must be on/off in order to make syncing available? I thought by using to SEND TO KINDLE app now, it would also sync between devices to the furthest page read. I might be missing something and wanted to get the latest information on this topic. Thanks in advance to everyone!

The way I understand it, BOTH devices have to receive the document via "Send to Kindle" (although I use email to my @kindle address, not that app) in order to sync. In other words, you can't put one copy on your Kindle via calibre and then send another copy to the cloud. They both have to be loaded as personal documents.

Phrased differently:

I send my NON-AMAZON books to my Kindle cloud storage by emailing them as attachments to (myaddress)@kindle.com. I then either direct them to the individual devices (say my iPhone and Kindle), or download them from the cloud from within those devices. After that they sync location, bookmarks/notes, etc.
