    Ok so I just got the 3G a couple days ago and I only have a couple of free apps on it so far.

    The problem is, everytime I try to sync music or photos, it says "transferring (app name) to iPhone" (or something to that effect, I don't really remember". The problem is it take forever to do each app. One time it was doing it for about 3 minutes on a single game. I canceled it because I thought something was wrong, but then it froze for aout another minute until it finally cancelled.

    I'm worried about what is going to happen when I actually have more apps. Is this normal? Do I just have to wait it out? I manually manage my music so at least I don't have to worry about it there, but will I just have to wait anytime I sync photos?

    One more thing I noticed. When I just synced my photos, it brought back 2 apps I deleted. I deleted about 5 apps yesterday at the same time, but it only brought back 2. So I have to permanently delete them somehow?

    On My iPhone, or my iPad?
    The syncing is installing the Apps on the phone or if you downloaded them on the phone it is transferring it to your computer.

    I always delete it from the phone through iTunes vice my phone.
