    I just got my replacement Galaxy S2 and I want to add the apps I downloaded from my prior phone but the Market is saying I already have them installed and is not recognising my new phone.

    I was unable to back up my phone before getting the new phone because the interior screen cracked and the screen was non operational so I couldnt even connect it to my PC because I had a screen lock out but when I turned on the phone and completed the setup, it said that it would sync with Google - I have all my contacts back but not my apps?

    You just need to press the report button and ask one of the nice mods to change the title. Don't worry about that though I've done it for you.

    Why is that creepy? :)

    In the Market, I now have two options to download apps to - my device which was registered in Dec and my replacement which was registered in Jan.

    I think it started working once I either synced my emails and signed into Social Hub or signed into Talk... Or opened Voice Search... I know one of the three fixed my issue ;)
