    Ok I restored my computer and lost all my bought apps. Then i foregot to authorize the computer so i didnt have a chance to transfer the purchases. Now I'm trying to download a .99 app i bought before but it says this in itunes:

    So what do I do? I checked my purchase history to see if the app is on the account and it is??

    If you bought it, you don't need to pay for it again

    NO
    just go with the paying and iTunes will say something along the lines of "Oh you bought this already, so now you can download for FREE"

    No. Only apps. Music and video you have to pay again.

    Unlock iPod? No need to. Just unplug the cable and it will go to the home screen.
