windows phone 8 launch SF 072 640x424It was not too long ago where an anomaly was reported concerning in the Windows Phone Store, where users were informed that they had to re-purchase apps which they had already purchased. This issue seemed to have appeared for folks who were migrating to a new handset, although not everyone experienced this niggling issue. Needless to say, it was extremely baffling as well as elicited plenty of frustration if you were in the process of setting up a new device, because it could not download any apps which you picked up previously – unless, of course, you wanted a double charge.

When Microsoft was contacted concerning the issue, they were told that “We are actively investigating this issue and will provide additional information as it becomes available.” Well, the issue seemed to have been resolved by itself recently, and folks who were affected before that were finally able to re-download majority of their apps without forking out money again.
