Hey guys,
I've recently had my Hard Drive replaced on my MBP and I didn't think to backup my apps. When I want to sync, It wants to erase all the apps off of my phone. I did a little research on the subject and it looks like I have to download ALL apps again on my computer. If I do this, will it replace the data within the apps (game achievements, etc).

Is there an easier way? :(

I'm having a similar issue and it's driving me nuts. I hope someone has a good solution. I don't want to lose all my pictures, app settings, sms, contacts and all that stuff just because I don't have my old computer anymore. If I find anything out, I'll try to help out

You should be able to right-click your iPhone in iTunes and hit "Transfer purchases." I think that's how it works on my macbook, at least.
