Can I transfer all my apps from a 3GS to the 4S?

    Yes. Everything that worked on your iPhone 3GS will work just fine on an iPhone 4S. You won't need to pay again to install your apps on the new iPhone. As a matter of fact, the first time you connect a new iPhone to your computer, iTunes will ask you if you want to set it up as a new phone or restore from the backup of your old phone. If you choose the second option, all data from your old phone, including apps, will automatically migrate to the new iPhone. Once it's all done, your new iPhone's setup will be essentially the same as the old one's, right down to the positions of your apps on the Home screen.
