    Hello everyone,

    So I just purchased a Lumia 520 as a replacement to my dead 920. The thing is, I've reset my 920 many times, and every time I reset it it would reinstall the apps that I downloaded. Is there a way to sync the apps that I've downloaded before that way I don't have to manually search for it in the Store? Thanks.

    You should be able to sign in with your Microsoft account and sync everything from your previous phone. At least that's my understanding of how it works...

    That's what I thought too. Maybe it's because I didn't have a SIM card when I first started the phone?

    Quite possibly...

    Ah yes, I just reset the phone and rebooted it with the SIM loaded. Worked as you said it would. Thanks! :)

    EDIT: Actually, I take that back. The only thing that synced were the UI profiles and accounts. No apps were recovered. *Sigh* Either way, I did find my app download history by logging onto windowsphone.com
