    Hey all,

    As I'm sure a few of you have.. know when you're setting up a new phone(or replacement if you're on vzw) and you sign in with the MS account... and all of you're previous apps start downloading automatically? How would one stop this from happening? I have a lot of apps that I downloaded just to try and do not want to reinstall every time I reset a phone..

    Only the apps you have currently installed (or installed at the time of your last apps+settings backup) will be automatically downloaded when you reset your phone and re-add your Microsoft account. You can avoid this by adding your Microsoft account after reaching the home screen during your setup (in which case neither your apps nor settings will be restored). Or you might be able to cancel the downloads one by one from the store.
