All apps are listed as purchases in the itunes store and on itunes, hook it up to a pc and you can easily add them all back again.

it will however be a ball ache to do if you have a lot of them

I'm just backing up my phone and syncing it now prior to updating to ios7, never the smoothest thing to do so am expecting to lose my contacts or similar for a few hours.

not 100% true. If the app has been deleted from the app store then you have lost it. Happened to me

hahaha, sorry but this is exactly why I hate Apple.

You do realise that is the core of their business plan? make the device obsolete?

I was given a hand-me-down iPhone 3Gs a while back. Thought I would do the right thing and upgrade to iOs6. Lost everything and also the battery just died instantly each time I switched it on.

Took it to an Apple store and met with an "expert" who told me that "sorry, this phone is past it's support period, we can't fix it, or even roll back to previous OS, so its dead, bricked."

Then he offered to sell me a "new" iPhone 3Gs, that had been recently manufactured so would work with iOs6.

So they still manufacture old phones to sell to you once your old phone stops working with their new OS.

Apple is Evil, end of.

Apple are no different to any big company, or in fact any company, they want to make money and people want to spend.

Updated my 4S with no issues. Looks nice, phone is running slightly slower though and expect the battery to be shit.

Just lining up the self-justification needed to shell out for a gold 5s!

Downloaded it last night in about 5 minutes hoping it would fix the fact my battery indicator does not work and when the phone eventually dies or I turn it off it reboots about 30 times. iOS7 works fine but the 2 faults I have are still there and the Apple store here do not give a shit.

Scamp I paid QR4200 for my 5 as it was one of the 1st within weeks they were 3500 and it really pissed me off. Give it a couple of months for the price to drop.
