All my apps are broken
I had an iphone 3gs and recently replaced it with an iphone 4.
So far, so good...
After a few days i updated it with itunes to 4.3.3 and transfered all my apps i had on the 3gs to the iphone 4.
And now none of them work anymore.
Not even the ones i bought on the 4 in the meanwhile.
Whenever i click an app i get a black screen for just a split second and then just back to home screen.
anyone have a suggestion other then just buying all the apps again (hoping they will work).
Thx in advance,

I doubt you could buy the apps again - iTunes knows what you have bought and haven't and they won't really let you do that I don't think.
I think you probably might want to do a restore and then re-install? If that doesn't work then I'd bring it back to the apple store - you shouldn't have every app fail to load.

Something is up with your phone. You need to do sync your apps onto iTunes. Do a full
restore of your phone as brand new and then sync your apps back. If it doesn't work
then you need to take it back to where you bought it.
On a side note: If you actually purchase an app from the app store you can download it
again without having to pay again. It recognizes your account and that you've already
purchased the app. iTunes may get this soon with music.

Yeah like these guys said your apps are crashing and that shouldn't be the case. I would just hook up to iTunes and uncheck Sync apps then do a sync. This will remove all the apps from the phone. Do a reboot and then hook back up and click sync apps and then sync to put the apps back onto your phone. If they still continue to crash I wouldn't even bother reloading the firmware just take it to an Apple store for a replacement unit.

All you have to do is sign in and out of the APP STORE on your phone, and download a free app or something. Thats what you have to do. I prank my wifey with this method all the time, you just accidentally signed out of the app store on your phone or itunes and siging back out/in and downloading any free app will fix the issue

Apple might change this policy, but I doubt it It's worked well for them so far...
On topic: do the restore. Apps should not be crashing, period.
