I had a 3GS and now iPhone 4, on the 3GS I had the Navigon gps app which I also bought the in app extras (traffic and panoramic view) but I noticed those extras didn't transferred to the new phone, the app wants we to buy the traffic and panoramic options again.

iPhone 3GS, Windows 7, iPhone 4 coming

    I've never done in app purchases, but I can assume that perhaps they are like just extra data the app allows you to buy and thus gets put in with other data files the app uses (eg: no new icon on home screens).

    Thus when you sync and backup it is part of the app data that gets backed up.

    If you didn't restore your new phone from your backup of your old phone then you didn't get your app data. If you just synced you just installed the apps not the data.

    They should transfer with zero issues as long as the account signed into on your phone matches the account used to originally purchase. You won't be charged twice, if that's the case.
