I had to reformat my computer and reinstalled iTunes. I plug in the phone and it says some of my apps cannot be transferred back due to activation thing? As this iTunes thing new to me I went ahead pressed restore and it restored my phone but all my purchased apps are not on my phone.

But as of looking at the file size on the phone the apps are still there but not shown on the pages. So how do I get all of them to reshow up again w/o having to download all the apps?

Sounds to me like you have to activate your phone through iTunes. If that's not it and you didn't keep backups of your apps on your hard drive, you may need to call Apple to request you be allowed to re-download the apps you've purchased. But first I'd make sure the phone has been activated.

Good luck!

Authorizing iPhone for paid apps.

On the Store Menu, click "Authorize Computer".
Then plug in your iPhone/iPod Touch and Cmd+Click it.
You will see an option to "Transfer Purchases"
click that.
you are done!
