    Hi,

    I would really like to buy me an iPhone 3G and I already have an iPod Touch and I wanted to know, whether it is possible to load the same paid-applications (for example SMB), which already are on my iPod Touch, onto my iPhone? Or do I have to pay for that once again?

    Something else: Does iTunes save onto my iTunes account what I bought? So, if I have an iTunes account with which I bought SMB, than I downgrade iTunes to 7.5, will I still be able (after an upgrade to 7.7 again) to load the applications, which I bought on 7.7 onto my iPod?

    Greetz

    PS: And sorry for my horrible english.

    Yes, your purchases are tied to your iTunes account, I believe. You won't have to pay for the same thing twice.

    So I will be able to use SMB once purchased on both of my devices running on one iTunes account?

    //e: If this is all true, I can share every application with my brother / my parents when we are all using the same account?

    Yes, you only need to purchase the application once and you can share it amongst your family.

    I'm not sure about downgrading and reupgrading back to iTunes 7.7, sorry.

    I know that you'll have a receipt sent to your email everytime you purchase an application so that could prove as proof if necessary.
