I've essentially lost some apps, how do I get them back?

    My 3GS crashed, I restored it to 3.1.3, and now say if I sync back an app that I used to have or download an app that I used to have ( before the crash), it will install, and then completely disappears from the iPhone home screen (same thing happens if I install it with iTunes, it installs but doesn't appear on the iPhone home screen). Spotlight search doesn't pick it up either. But I can still download other apps just fine, just not ones that my account downloaded before (they download and install but just disappear). What should I do to get them back?

    Look under your pillow.

    If they aren't there, do a restore.

    After they install and disappear, I go back to the App Store and it says I can't download it again because it's already installed. Not any apps that I NEED, but I paid for some of them and would really like them.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Try restarting the iphone and downloading them again.
    If that dont work and it keeps doing the same I'd suggest a restore to 3.1.3 again.
