    Have no idea why but when I did a restore it didn't restore, it set to factory default. everything was there when i started (it showed in itunes and I have been backing up).

    So how do i get all my purchased stuff back?

    Open iTunes, look under accounts where it should show my purchases.

    Thanks, I have been looking all over my account and can't seem to find anything. What area on the account is that found?

    Ok, follow the below link to re-download all your purchased apps.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2519

    Read this:

    To re-download all your apps into iTunes.

    First you need to authorize your iTunes. (Store > Authorize Computer)
    Next, check for available downloads (Store > Check For Available Downloads)
    iTunes will then check for what you have purchased before, and give you an option to re-download your purchased apps.

    To see a listing of all the apps you have purchased or downloaded, do this :

    Go to Store > View My Account
    Login
    Click on "Purchase History"
    You should now see all the apps you have downloaded before.

    Thanks!

    P.S. on a totally unrelated topic ........What is there to do in Johannesburg? I'm thinking of visiting later this summer (summer for me, what is the weather like there now). I work for an airline and I am looking for places to go. Went to Dubai in Dec. but the middle east is out of the question with the current situation over there. Been to Australia but it cost way to much over there now. Was thinking about Japan a few months ago but that is out now. Have always wanted to visit Johannesburg so maybe now would be a good time.

    Restore "purchased" not just downloaded free Apps

    Well it's easy to re-install my previously purchased apps...I can also go to apple store and try to recall all the apps I had purchased and intalling them once again.

    I purchased full versions of the apps and when I re-install either by following the way of Bluray or my rigorous way, I am back to the free version. BTW I lost them when i did an upgrade to IOS5.

    Can anyone help me on how I can restore the "purchased" versions of my apps?
