    You can always download it again for free after the restore or even from itunes itself.

    You sure? It says if you dont back up your apps on itunes you will have to purchase them again.

    I am sure. When you go to purchase it again it will pop up with a message saying you have already purchased it and ask if you want to download it again for free. It is only music and movies that itunes charges again if you try to redownload.

    You will not be charged again, even if you do it from the iphone itself.

    Really? I was charged again. They told me it's for security reasons, otherwise I could just enter my account info on other peoples iPhones and give them my apps for free. That's why they only made it work through iTunes, because each iPhone syncs with only 1 computer.

    As long as the phone is linked to your account itunes will not charge you again. You could enter your account info on other peoples phones and do it for free. But it would mean that they are linked to your account.

    I don't understand. If my take my friends iPhone, go to settings, store, sign out, then sign into my account, download all my paid apps, then sign back out, it will work? I have tried that and it doesn't work..it asks u to pay again

    No that will not work because you are signing back out after. You would have to permanently link it to your account, so it would not be linked to his account anymore.

    What you are talking about is different than what the OP is. He is restoring his own phone on his own account. He will not have any issues downloading apps that he has purchased already on his iphone or in his itunes as both will be linked to his account.

    It will still work if you setup as new. As soon as you sync to itunes and put in your account and password you will be linked to your account again, so you can download any apps that you purchased on that account for free. You are having trouble with your brothers one because his is probably linked to his account already.

    Oh okay, so it only links to the account that u put in right after a restore? And the only way to link it to another account is to restore again? That makes sense..

    You dont necessarily have to restore again. But you do have to unlink it from the current account, which could erase any apps that are already on there.

    Sync it to another itunes account will do it, you will probably get a warning about it erasing the stuff that is currently on it.
