    I did some searching here in the forums and didn't really see an answer to my question. If there IS a thread here feel free to post the link in a reply!

    My question is thus: I recently did a full restore. I backed up my 3gs and I have to re-download many of the apps that I purchased.

    Will I be charged for the apps again since I did a restore? I've re-downloaded before but I always got a prompt telling me I purchased this or that app before.

    I didn't get the prompt this time.

    Anyone experience this besides me?

    You won't get charged again. Do make sure you are logged into the same iTunes account.

    Ideally, you should have all your purchased apps in iTunes on your computer and also a backup of all those apps. Then you wouldn't have to worry about having to re-download.
