    Is there a specific way to transfer the games purchased or do I just log in the authorized account and download them again? I don't want to be charged again, Thanks!

    u wont be charged again, if your logged on to your apple account by ipod or itunes and u download the apps again it will have a pop up window that says "you've purchased this tiem before, press ok if u want it free"

    I just clicked buy, and the box says "Are you sure you want to buy and download this game"? Your credit card will be charged for this purchase. Cancel or Buy. So I just click buy, and that box WILL say I already purchased it?

    I forgot to say that this is for my new iphone.

    An easier way is to plug in your iPhone/iPod touch and right click on devices and click on "Transfer Purchases"
    It'll copy them for you.

    That's right too, but a method involving iTunes is to go under

    Store-->Check For Purchases-->Type in account info-->Transfer Purchases

    The above method of re-downloading is risky considering there is a chance it will glitch and charge you twice.

    My method along with chadi's is much safer and intended by Apple.
    *Whenever you purchase an app or any other item from iTunes, there is a record in Purchase History or with the iPod itself considering it's Authorized.

    That method doesn't work for me.. ever.

    I end up redownloading.. and even with updates, i just repurchase them.

    Weird.

    Applications I bought on my iPod weren't transferred to iTunes and then it downloaded all of my missing applications.
