    Hi All,

    So I upgraded my 3G 8Gb on Tuesday, had the issue many have experienced with back up and decided to do a fresh install. What I don’t understand is what to do about apps that I have paid for. I have two accounts that I have bought from (UK iTunes account and one on South Africa) I am not sure which apps I bought and on which accounts. Now I need to install apps again it seems it wants me to pay for them again.

    Can anyone tell me how I can tell iTunes to download all previously bought apps, I understand I will need to sign in to the respective accounts.

    Also, what will happen when I buy a new 4G, will I have to buy the apps again?

    Any help would be grateful

    There is no way to tell iTunes to download all purchased apps. You will have to download them individually. Within iTunes you can search the invoices for your purchased app.

    First of all the new iPhone is not a 4G. It is the iPhone 4. And you do not need to buy the apps again.
