    Is there a way to download apps from Google play without installing right away, but saving the files to install later or else, please?

    No, they will install right away. My understanding is they will sit completely inactive until you open it for the first time.:dontknow:

    I see, if we have more than one phone we have to pay for each if we can't use Wi-Fi. Is that what happens to you too? With all your phones it costs you a little fortune to have some apps on more than one.

    If you have more than one phone on the same Google account you only pay once.

    If you use different Google ids on two phones then you pay twice, since as far as Google are concerned there is no connection between them - they are on different accounts.

    That depends. I have two phones (my current GNex and my retired OG Droid) and 2 Nexus 7's (mine and my 6 yr old sons). All of those are registered under my GMail account and any app I buy is available to any of those devices.

    My wife has her S3 and her retired HTC Rhyme, and apps she has purchases are available on either of her devices.

    As far as apps purchases through the Amazon App store, you can share that account accross multiple phones without having separate Google accounts. They also offer a free app of the day and I have taken full advantage of that when something catches my eye.

    I hope this makes sense.
