Is there a charge to re-download from iTunes?
I think I may know the answer to this question, but I figured I would ask just to make sure. If this is a "DUH!" question, I apologize in advance. I currently have an iPhone 4 and I am thinking about not restoring my iPhone 4S to my current iPhones state. I have all my contacts and other information through Google so none of that is a big deal. But when it comes to all of my apps if I go to the store to download them, will it charge me again? Or as long as I use my current apple id will it matter?

Open up your iTunes account, on the side bar you will see "Apps" listed under "Library"..that is where your Apps are all neatly stored/saved. See photo below..

When logged into the app store on your iPhone it shows all the apps you have bought. The current ones on your phone and the ones not installed.
I imagine getting a new phone and logging into the app store would show that you have non of them installed.
Its free of charge to redownload them.

The key here is to sync your current iPhone to your computer before syncing your new iPhone. Anything purchased on your iPhone will transfer to iTunes on the computer. I think it is a smart idea for anyone who already has an iPhone and is getting a new one to do this- and then sync with a cable. We are talking about gigabytes of data here!
As for the songs: yes, you can re-downlaod any you missed. You can do this from your iPhone or in iTunes. Look under the "purchased" tab in the iTunes store App on your iphone or in iTunes look at your source list on the far left side and the heading "STORE" there is a sub-heading that reads "Purchased". It will have your entire purchase history (Including apps and books all with the same ID) and you will be able to re-download any and all.

I really want my son to have his, even if I have to wait a while. I know people probably think I am sappy but he is such a great son and although times have been a little tough lately he doesn't complain. I am so proud of him! I am hitting up Grandma and Grandpa and other family members to help me get him one. Or, who knows.. I may win the one being given away here!
