 I had an email this morning from someone who had had her phone
replaced and wanted to know why she had to buy my game all over again.
Good question, I thought. I just refunded her purchase but isn't any
record of their purchases stored in the cloud?

 Did she sign in w/ her previous Gmail account or used another one?

 This seems to be relevant ;topic=16286
and I think it means "yes, they can re-download the same app on their
other devices".

This is a situation where you're happy that there's only one account
associated with each device (short of doing a factory reset, which
wipes all installed apps anyway), because it's very implicit which
account is actually purchasing the application.

1. Java Midlet


I have my own java midlets which I want to try to run in Android phone
itself. I have tried using Midlet runner available in Market (by
netmite) but it only allows me to browse through available java
midlets and install from a website. I want a runner which i want to
use to test my own midlets. Or is there any other method other than
using Midlet runner?

Thanks and Regards,
