How do I get my old purchased apps back?

I had an iPhone 3G and sold it about 7 months ago. I just got a new 3GS. How do I get the apps I already purchased back?

I look in the billing section of iTunes (previous purchases) and they are all listed (well, actually 1 seems to be missing) but if I try to download them again it is going to charge me.

Am I SOL or can I get these back?

download them again from an authorized computer (not your new iphone) and you'll be fine

It only says it`ll charge you but once you click the buy button it`ll give you the message "You have already bought this app. To download it again for free press OK". It wont charge you again as long as you make sure you are using the same iTunes account with which you bought the apps previously.
