    So I bough a couple games from the Sprint store (online) a couple years ago, including Bejewled, Deer Hunter and Tetris. I have changed phones a couple times since then, and was able to redownload them free of charge because it kept records on my account of them. Now I have my Evo and cannot figure out how to get back to the Sprint store site, so I cant get these games I have already paid for. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    They're most likely not going to work even if you COULD redownload them. If you didn't have an android phone back then, then you'll need to rebuy them from the Market (Or EA's mobile website for Bejeweled, Tetris)

    Yeah, I lost Othello, Metal Gear, and Galaga-mini.

    I don't think they're compatible with Android phones. When I tried going thru Sprint's website, they just pushed me towards the Android Market.

    Those games were catered for your old phone which probably used java as the runtime enviroment for those games. Even if you found out how to download them, they wouldnt run on your EVO(android) phone. ;(

    Unless there is an app that i dont know about ?

    The games were created for a different platform and not Android. I you want games, you'll have to search the Market and repurchase.

    If you decide to go back to a "dumbphone" in the future, not sure if those purchases will show up again. I doubt you'll ever go back, especially after getting the EVO. :)

    TwistaX beat me to it.

    Ya they did use Java as the runtime environment.
