    I had bought many apps on my lumia 900 but when I try to download those paid apps i get an option of try or buy..!!! I mean i paid for the app. Is there any way to download it again without paying for it. I went to windowsphone.com/purchase history but it doesnt show all of my apps.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't have a WP8, but recently replaced my Omnia7 with a Lumia900 and was able to redownload withou any problem. Just to be sure: You did use the same Microsoft Account (Live ID) on both phones?

    Just hit buy. It should tell you have bought the app before and ask if you would like to reinstall. On the odd chance it does charge you twice, MS Support will refund after email.

    You are absolutely right @Ljkelley I completely forgot, thats how it works. At first I was hesitant as well to just click Buy.
