    i updated to 2.2.1 successfully. However, some of my apps are no longer on my phone. They are still in the Applications folder under Library on my MBP. I have sync'ed the phone to itunes and checked all the boxes next to the missing apps.
    No luck.
    How can i get them back? when i go to the app store, it says i already purchased them, and i cant DL them again...

    Is it a backup I need to do?
    The only backup that shows up under "devices" in itunes is the one from after i updated.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    1. Delete the applications from your iTunes library

    2. Sync your phone

    3. Re-download your applications

    4. Sync your phone again


    I'm just guessing here, but I don't see why the above wouldn't work.

    Not sure. Just a guess. Maybe some apps are not compatible with the update, and thus will not load.

    When this this happen to me before I would get an error message on iTunes saying that the app could not be sync'ed. Maybe that part is not working.

    Again, just a guess.
