    Hi, I am currently selling my iPhone to a family friend and was wondering whether when they sync or connect the phone to their own computer will the apps that I have purchased and installed still remain on the phone and be able to be used?

    Thanks for your help!...

    No they are tied to your iTunes account, not the phone.

    No, they will be erased once a sync has occured. All of his iTunes information will over ride the iPhone. You may as well hard reset it.

    Thanks for the super quick reply! Is there any way that he can then install new apps by using the store on the phone and I choose not to "Automatically sync phone once connected"?

    Thanks guys...

    I assume he will get his own account and as such will have to sync it with I-Tunes so.... no the apps will go away. There are so many free apps he will have fun.
