    Is this possible? In other words if I purchase apps on my phone and down the road replace it, is there anyway to recover the apps I paid for? Are they linked to my sprint/gmail account?

    I'm 97.5 percent sure that paid apps are tied to your gmail account.

    This is correct. Once you sign into your gmail account on your new device, the apps that you have already paid for will show up as "PURCHASED" in the market. You can then download them at no charge.
