This question already has an answer here:
To start things off I am new at this so bear with me... I have bought coins through LocalBitCoins and sent them to my wallet (with 24 confirmations).
I am currently on Bitcoin Core with 2 years and 23 weeks behind Synchronizing. I heard you were able to send Bitcoins without actually being Synchronizing but whenever I try to send my funds elsewhere I get a "Insufficient funds exceeded" box. I go back to overview to see that my Bitcoins have not been transferred to my Bitcoin Core wallet yet probably prompting the insufficient funds.
I know waiting to finish Synchronizing is the better solution but I thought I was able to send the coins without being synchronized?
