    Hi

    I have purchased a few apps and games
    now my little brother is getting a phone and he will probably want to play those games on his own phone
    do i have to buy them again?
    is it possible to do install apps i've purchased in his phone using family setting and so?

    looking forward to answer

    Set the phone under your live id. Then you can goto windows phone site and choose that phone and you can install from there.

    The answer is no. You can't share apps in between accounts.

    If it were possible, we would all be sharing paid apps with our friends which is software piracy.

    It can be done in windows 8
    you can install apps you've purchased on your child's account

    It's the same device though. Windows Phone does not yet allow multiple users to 'log in' on the same phone. It's like watching buying a DVD, a room full of people can watch it, but you can't play it on 2 DVD players at the same time unless you copy it.
