    You would just redownload them from iTunes?

    I know that, but how? I mean do I have to search for every app on itunes? Or is there something that checks for everything and just downloads?

    Did you log in on iTunes, and then check for purchased downloads which were available? Or did you go into Store -> View My Account -> Purchase History?

    gotta download manually. sync your phone back to itunes, anything leftover, manually download.

    be careful, I think there's a time limit to re-download for free and itunes only tells you "you have already purchased this app" after you already click buy. I've accidentally re-bought apps like this.

    Damn, time to look through purchase history. Jar I checked for purchased downloads, was never able to download apps that way.

    I had a similar problem. Email apple and explain to them the situation. They can then enable something on your account to re-download all your apps by clicking the "check for available downloads" button.
