    Quick question...

    I read that if I have to replace my Windows Phone (Nokia Lumia 928) for whatever reason I need to have "find my phone" enabled otherwise I will have to repurchase my apps. I have it enabled but on the system screen it shows disabled. Where do I go to confirm that it is enabled and my Apps is backed up?

    What I did was logged into the store and clicked "Find my phone" in the top-right dropdown:

    Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Mine shows disabled as well but it still works through the website.

    There have been a few thread with this same issue.

    There is no stable fix as of yet. Yes, you can still find your phone on windowsphone.com but it does not have all of the options you would normally have if it was working correctly. I can still find, ring and probably erase my phone from windowsphone.com, and I can send apps to my phone. What does not happen though is my phone's location is not saved periodically. I wish this would be fixed.

    Here are a list of the threads:





    But...for your question on repurchasing apps, I don't believe that has anything to do with having "Find My Phone Enabled." Your purchases are tied to your Microsoft Account. Just log into your new phone with the same Microsoft Account and you should be able to redownload your apps. You should actually be able to restore from backup. Just try to setup your wifi fast, as a restore from backup starts right away and uses data, since wifi is not setup on a new device yet.
