Dear all,

I just tried to transfer existing apps from Nokia lumia 900 to Nokia lumia 920, including the one I paid, what is the best way to do it without paying again ?

All of your past purchases are stored on your Windows Phone account. The link that reach2sandeep posted shows you all of your past purchases and downloads. You can send them to your new phone without repurchasing the apps.

On the phone marketplace, you can re-download the apps as well. You may have to click the PURCHASE button, but the store realizes that you already own the app, and you will see a screen informing you that you have already purchased this app, would you like to reinstall it?

Click yes, and the app will install on the new phone for free.

Dear all,


Right now what I can see is I can only do "Download and install manually", and when I do the installation, what I see is the search apps screen in Windows 8 pro:
