I have "universal" apps that I have downloaded...they show up on iPad and iPhone. Some don't work visually for iPhone (16g) so I would like to delete them to have more room on my iPhone. When I do, not always but sometimes it deletes app from my iPad too. I can reinstall...but it's back on my iPhone too. I've done preliminary research on this but would like to hear from you guys.

Thank you Scott....I considered this...but if I do - will the (universal) apps I do want (later) show up or will I have to manually find them and download them on my iPhone (purposely). That's fine, I don't mind that at all...but there are some apps I purchase that I do want in both places.

If you turn it off, they will only show up on the device you download them to initially, so yes, you,would have to go the manual route to get one on both devicesmifmyou turn this feature off.
