I have around 400 apps and was wondering if they can all fit on my iPhone. I've put them into folders and only have 3 pages but my other apps won't sync into the phone. It says I have 379 apps in the about section but I only have around 100 on my phone that's actually visible. When I'm syncing, I can see the pages of apps on the computer but when the syncing has finished, there are no apps there. Please help!!

    16 folders per page, 12 apps per folder, 11 pages - that gives you 2112. After that the apps will continue to load, but on the pages you will only be able to see in iTunes on your computer, but can still use on the iPhone using the search facility. You have a way to go yet...

    Edit: assuming there's enough memory, of course.

    That depends on their size of course... some apps a 2MB and some are 2GB.

    You can select them all and try to sync.

    Your calculations are wrong:

    You can have eleven pages of apps, but you can also put apps in folders. Thus, 180 without folders, 2160 with folders. Max apps per folder is 12. You forgot about the potential of 4 folders on the springboard. That's visible apps, of course.

    Obviously not since all 32GB is not available to store apps.
