    Happy bank holiday everyone,

    |Can you help me get all my purchased apps back. After my 920 being sent back to me after 4 weeks and a day from orange it has come back as a new unit. I backed up phone regular but how can I get all my apps I paid for including games. I have gone to store to download them but having to pay for them all again. Is this what I have to do? I spent quite a bit thinking so much of phone and keeping it for a long time.

    Big thank you for help,

    You will not have to repurchase them. When you click purchase it will tell you that you have already purchased the application and download it just like on iOS.

    Hi Narse77,

    I have tried but when I go to store I still have to pay? It doesn't say that I have purchased them previously. Were can I find out what apps I bought, as I got quite a few and cant remember them all. Paid 5 plus for quite a few games so out of pocket by quite a bit.

    when you go through the steps and click purchase it will still ask for payment etc, but right after you select the payment it will tell you that you have already purchased it. I have done it many many times.

    Go, log in, click apps, then purchase/download history. Find it all there.

    Even better, if you have your pics and music backed up, do a factory reset, then all your stuff should be downloaded auto/directly after you input your Windows Live ID. At least, that's what I would do on my 8X.
