    Please help!!
    I have an iphone 3gs. I had a virus on my laptop and had to start from scratch. I managed to get my tunes back from my iPod however i can not get my apps back. I have just restored my phone and the apps are not in my apps section when i open itunes however they are in my account when i sign in.
    How do i restore them back into itunes from my itunes account?
    Any help would be much appreciated!!

    Did you make a back-up from your last resync?

    Hmmmmm. They should of been on there if your phone synced when you plugged it in.

    I am at a loss man, I don't think your apps are there anymore

    You need to download them again. It is free to do so, look at your purchase history and go down the list. Then sync your iPhone, you will need to go to apps section and check them go be put back on.

    Yup...even though it says "buy now" and "are you sure you want to purchase this app?" if you're confident that it's the same app that you have bought in the past it will download for free.
