    OK, to make a long story short, my iPhone wasn't working properly, so I reset everything on it. When I connected it to iTunes, it started syncing, as normal. But, it then says it cannot copy anything I've purchased from the Apple Store (including apps) to my iPhone (it says "it is not authorized for this computer.")

    How do I fix this problem?

    Profile name important

    Oddly, when I authorized using the account email address, it didn't work (though it said I was authorized, I still got this error).

    To get my account name from the iPHone, I went to Settings->Store->View Account. Once I authorized with the username, it worked correctly.
