    Hey guys,

    I searched the forum but couldn't find anything usefull but i had a little question.
    I'm thinking of upgrading my G1 to a Nexus one. But is there a way to use my bought apps on my new Nexus? Are the apps somehow linked to my google account so i don't have to buy every app again on my Nexus?

    Apps are tied to your Google account. All purchased (and free) should download when you activate your new phone. Just be sure to have "save my settings" checked under menu > settings > privacy. Also be sure not to interrupt the downloading process which should begin as soon as you log into your phone. You can tell it's downloading by a notification in the notification bar (either the download or sync one, I forget). It could take about 10 minutes and durring that time don't go to the Market or it will be interrupted.
