Do all my downloaded Apps stay in Appworld to download again?

I have had a lot of problems with my 9900 - to such a point that I am due a replacement phone in a few days.


I will be copying everything from the old phone to the new phone, BUT, one thing an advisor here said, was to add only the Apps you need, as one of them may be causing the problems.


So, my question is, becuase these have been downloaded before, on my NEW device, will I be able to go into App world and download them again WITHOUT copying them all across from my old phone?


So I can then get them one by one, test.... download another...test.... download another..test and so on?


Or do I have to now copy the lot across, or I have lost them?

Re: Do all my downloaded Apps stay in Appworld to download again?

Yes, you will want to install those apps to your new device fresh from AppWorld.


When you login with the SAME BlackBerryId, at the initial setup of the device AND in AppWorld, you will:

On the new device go to AppWorld > MyWorld.

You should see any purchased/paid applications. Free apps may not be listed, just search for again.

If you don't see the paid apps in MyWorld, with MyWorld open click the Menu key > Refresh List.
