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.

    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.
