    Yesterday i bought an iphone 3gs from Italy. The previous owner had it for a few weeks and had allready bought some apps (like I go my way - and that costs 90 euros). Now i have to sync my ipod with my computer and i really wouldn't want to lose theese apps (my itunes says that it will replace them all). There's gotta be a way to keep them.

    And (but it probably doesn't matter) I'm using two iphones on the same computer.

    Thanks.

    You can ask the seller for his iTunes account. Otherwise, I'm not too sure how to do it legally.

    There's no way to do it unless you get his username/password for iTunes.

    But if i get his username and get the apps on my computer - can i keep them under another account? Aren't the apps bound to a specific account?

    Either way, you'd need his password to do updates to the apps too.
