If so, with your iPhone connected and without syncing, at the iTunes menu bar go to File and select Transfer Purchases From - the name of your iPhone. This should transfer all apps on your iPhone free and paid that are not currently in your iTunes library on your computer.
Follow this by selecting Sync Apps under the Apps tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes and leave this selected from here on out. MacBook Pro 15" Intel Core 2 Duo/2.53GHz/4GB RAM/500GB HD, Mac OS X (10.6.3), iPod w/Video 30GB, iPhone 3G 16GB
Currently Being ModeratedMay 22, 2010 1:51 AM (in response to Allan Sampson)Thanks for your reply. I've done what you suggested but I have encountered another problem: despite the fact that I have authorized my computer I have a message telling that the apps can't be transfered because my computer is not authorized...
I have then denied the authorization - restarted iTunes - authorized the computer again, but this did not change anything.
Any idea? I thank you in advance for your help. Cheers.PC, Windows Vista, Vista Business 32-bit SP2

Did you enter a different email address to set up your account on your phone than the one you put on iTunes on your PC? See the troubleshooting steps under "Authorize using the correct account name." To see what address you entered on your phone go to Settings>Store>View Account. If these don't match you'll be stuck in a loop because you haven't authorized the computer under the account you used to purchase the apps.iPhone 3g, iPhone OS 3.1.3, 2nd gen iPod Touch
