How do I get my apps from a 3G to a 4S?

I have tried to backup my 3G phone with I tunes.  It keeps telling me my computer is not authorized but when I try and authorize it. The message says that it is already authorized.  Any suggestions?

Ensure that the iTunes username/password is the same.

 

Also here is Authorize Computer but there is also Transfer Purchases.  Follow the steps below:

Also even if apps were not backed up you shouldn't lose any if they were purchased via the App Store.  In iOS you can click on

App Store > Updates..  At the top is a bar called Purchased.  If you click that it will show all your apps that were aquired via the App Store and you can re-download whatever you want.
