    I beleive it gets tied to an email address. So as long as you use the same email you are fine, I beleive.

    Most devs will port apps over to newer phones. Shoot them an email and find out.

    I have bought several apps from the App Store and from Cydia and I have never been charged when I have had to download them again after restoring phone!

    I would suggest that you purchase PKGBackup from Cydia as you can backup your Jailbroken Apps and restore when an upgrade is made! When you update just simply go to Cydia and redownload and you will NOT be charged again and then you can restore your previous backup!

    May be other backup's pkg but this is the one I purchased!
