    I am a HUGE fan of Phone Saber--I know, not the most useful app but lots of fun!

    Now that it has been removed from the app store I am worried that it will be deleted the next time I sync my phone. Is this a possibility?

    Thanks for your help!

    It was removed a while ago and I still have mine so I think you're safe. Remember if apple really wants to remove it they can do it remotely without you even knowing

    I think the OP would know as soon as they looked for it and it was gone.

    I just meant that you could not sync and it could still disappear without your knowledge...until of course you went to look for it obviously.

    I "bought" it when it was available. Now I've synched and it is still on the iPhone, allowing me to defend myself.

    I'd like to see them defend their actions should they choose to delete files off my computer. The iPhone EULA might permit their backdoor use, but I sure as hell wouldn't agree to that when dealing with a software application such as iTunes.

    This is just a wild guess, but I would assume it would just remove it from your iPhone and then block it from being installed so the app file itself would still be on your computer hard drive

    well if your phone is jailbroken, there is an option in bossprefs to disable apple from doing so :D

    I got an e-mail that guaranteed to make my phone saber three inches longer.

    They had me put two iPhones end to end.

    :D
