So today I finally decide to install the newest update for my ipod - I got a warning that said, basically, "you will lose all your music, but your apps are safe". So I backed up all my music (with an external program, of course =/ ) and figured I was safe to go.
After the update was *finally* complete, and it had to re-sync everything, I failed to uncheck the box that said "automatically sync apps".
So now I have lost all my apps, 6 pages worth, including all my paid-for ones.
Someone PLEASE tell me there is a way to get them back other than trying to remember every single one and re-downloading it.
And for the ones that I had paid for, I used 2 different accounts when buying them, some on my account, and some on my husband's, so if I go to redownload it, it will say, "Are you sure you want to pay whatever?" and then I have to click, "Yes, Buy" and *then* it says "You've already paid for this; download again for free?" Well, I'll be saying "Yes, Buy" to a lot of things without knowing which account it was bought with, so there is a very good chance I'll end up paying for a lot of apps again with no way to cancel it.
So yeah, this is mostly a rant at how frustrating, annoying, and stupid Apple is and how much I hate them, and after this ipod finally craps out on me I won't be getting another one, BUT UNTIL THEN can anyone PLEASE tell me if there is a way to get my apps back???
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
EDIT: I just remembered why I started using the other account to buy apps with: the credit card on my account expired, when I went to enter the new information, it continuously refused to accept my security code from the back. It was asking for the 3-digit number from the back of the card, after the card number, and no matter how many times I entered it, it would not accept it.
So that means that I will not be able re-download *anything* that I bought with that account?
