    I made a backup of my iphone 3G this morning. I activated and synced my iPhone 4 just now. But not all of the apps from my iphone 3G synced onto the 4. did I miss something somewhere? or are only iPhone4-compatible apps currently able to sync from iphone 3 to 4?

    same question

    Very few of my apps synced to my new iPhone.

    They all have grayed out "A" icons that don't have the actual app icons. See attached.

    I can't seem to get them onto the new iPhone 4.

    Any suggestions?

    I tried right clicking the iPhone icon on the left and hitting "Transfer Purchases", and also tried Reset Warnings.
    No luck.

    Same thing happen to me?

    I went to the att store to see if they could transfer my apps and they said, "no we don't have iTunes 9.2 installed yet." :confused:

    bump -- anyone else with this problem?
    Spent several hours trying to get apps onto my phone. Nothing.

    Is your itunes upgraded to 9.2 and your boxes all checked? My apps didn't sync the first time I synced the phone, but after I activated the phone and returned home after work I went to the App tab and checked which ones I wanted and they all synced fine.

    Is it necessary to upgrade to iOS4 on your 3G or 3Gs before restoring to the i4?
