    Okay, I just upgraded from an 2g iphone to a iphone 3gs after I accident dropped my 2g iphone in flood water. I now have a new computer and it doesn't have the backups from my 2g phone. How can I get the apps that I paid for back?

    unfortunately, you will have to re-download everything from itunes again. the only good part to that is that apple doesnt charge u twice.

    I tried using the "transfer purchases" feature. But nothing happened.

    Well, if you got a new computer and didn't copy the backup or anything to the new one, then you'll have to go into iTunes in your computer, sign in with your iTunes account that you got the apps, and redownload (purchase) them again (you won't get charged, as long as you the same account).

    Oh okay, it says "buy now". But when I click it, it says that i've already purchased.


    thanx
