    Strange probably here....

    I put a few apps on my micro sd card (via phone mounted to pc over usb) then I opened astro and installed them on the phone. Apps work fine; but I can't update them? All it will let me do is buy them...? WTC?

    The apps are 1)Beautiful Widgets 2)Office Suite 3)Switch Pro Widget

    Phone: VZW HTC Incredible


    Anyone know what the problem is? These apps all show update available but when I go into the market to let the apps get updated it won't let me; all it will let me do is buy...?

    The problem is that these apps are paid and you installed them without paying for them which means you stole them.

    If you are using the same Gmail account on the new phone as on the old phone and bought them while you were using the old phone you should have the paid apps ready in the Market to be installed. That is the way it works.

    If you changed your Gmail account apart from the phone you have to buy them again.
