    Hi

    just bought a Touch on ebay and really enjoying the new appstore, push email etc. However, once O2 launch the 3G Iphone on PAYG near xmas, I will want to get one of those instead. What will happen to all the apps/games I've bought, will I be able to transfer them to the new 3g Iphone?

    cheers

    Mat

    cheers for the quick reply. Is it a simple itunes process or does it need some third party piece of software ?

    It'll do it when you plugin your iPhone.

    it'll automatically sync on itunes because you have an app folder..

    i'm not sure you can have same apps on 3g iphone that you bought for ipod touch because then every1 could just run to his friends place and sync all his friends apps(that your friend has bought) with your own ipod.

    Actually you can, as each app has a device limit of 5 im pretty sure, so you could have it on your iPhone and iPod at the same time, although do not quote me on this as i am not certain!

    It's not a device limit, it's a computer limit. Apple was smart on this one.

    yes you can. its like music. it will be stored onto ur computer and u can plug it into ur device. and sync it back on. by the way, by my friend who asked one of the 02 staff, the iPhone 3G might come out in a few weeks on PAYG
