    Hi,

    Can someone help me please, I have had an iPad for a while now, but why is it when I want to download games etc that I have already bought via App Store and I have no money in my bank account it won't allow me and says declined, the only time I can get games etc that I have already bought is when my money is in my bank account which I don't think is fair and pretty poor customer service as we should be able to download our purchases at any time.

    Is there a way round this?

    All the best,
    Karl.

    Backup your iPad to iTunes regularly. When you need to reinstall an app that has been purchased before, you can use iTunes to get it back to your device.

    Do the apps show up in your App Store purchase history? That's where I go to re-download previously purchased apps. I've also got my entire iTunes library downloaded to an external hard drive and can sync any previous purchases by connecting to iTunes on my computer. This includes many apps that are no longer in the App Store or my purchase history.
