When I updated to the most recent iPhone software last year, my phone had trouble getting the update and after resetting it and trying to restore it, I still have a number of apps that I can't find. These apps:
- don't show in my "purchase" list in the iStore
- do show as downloaded if I try to repurchase (even the free ones)
- are not hidden
- show as an unchecked app on the list of apps on the left if I open the iPhone in iTunes, but when I check it, it does not allow it to be synched because it says it can't be found
I have an iPhone 3GS and iPad 2 with a MacBook Pro as the mothership. Any way to redownload apps that the store clearly knows I already own (wouldn't label them 'downloaded' if it didn't).
I have checked under my two diff identities (a me.com account and another one that I owned from way back) and have same issue in both.
