Mine sit in iTunes hoping to be remembered
And I back the library up to a second drive nightly.

So no need to keep them all on the device itself.

iTunes should work for you?

Just back them to iTunes, and you can sync them over any time. O_o
When you buy something, you've bought it, you won't get charged for redownloading.

Unless you meant actual page space. In that case you can't do much unless you have a jailbroken device to add folders to organize apps.

You can delete games and reinstall them from itunes. I do however wish it were easier to sort games on my iphone....maybe by game type (action, RPG, etc...)

Jailbreaking seems to be the answer for me. I had the 9 page problem, but now I've jailbroken, I've got a whole page of "Folders" Within these folders, are different genres. Like I've got a folder for "Sims", inside it is every form of X-Plane.

I have 325 games / apps. This is how I do it with OS 3.0 and spotlight.

Do you honestly think that Apple (the most money hungry company in the world next to MS) would let you reproduce games you bought so that you could resell them? There's a fine line between ignorance and stupidity, and you're dancing on it.

How do you do that?
