    If I uninstall apps that I purchased do I have to re-buy them?

    You do not. It will say "Buy" when you try to re-download them but after tapping buy it goes straight to "Install," no re-purchasing necessary.

    You can also login with your live account here: Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States); this will allow you to track your purchase history if you need to re-download an app/game in the future.

    There have been temporary bugs in the store where users were charged a second time for the same app, when attempting reinstall, but if you have, and you contact Microsoft through the store (I'm guessing there's a link in the store on the web page), I've heard that they've been helpful.
