    The apps are attached to your gmail account that you used when you purchased the apps. They'll transfer over to any other carrier or phone when you set it up with the same gmail address.

    The purchased apps are linked to the Google account.

    I use a phone with a removed SIM card and do connect to the market via WiFi.
    There is no problem to download my purchased apps :)
    So I have the apps on my phone with the SIM card and on my second phone witout SIM card.

    The step with a new SIM card I didn't yet :)
