    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?


    thanks

    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:

    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?
