    Just submitted for help to Google, but since I upgraded to the Bionic my purchased apps aren't being displayed as purchased. Both on the phone and market website. I'm sure it's just coincidence that it happened today, but anyone else having issues?

    some apps have been removed from the google market.
    can you give examples of which ones you're missing?

    They're not missing. They display with the price instead of "Purchased". Touchdown and WeatherBug Elite are 2 of them.

    Yep, same account. On the market website it shows the same thing, and says I haven't purchased any apps. It does however show me all of the free downloaded apps I had on my previous phone, so that confirms it's the same account.

    on market.android.com can you log into any other gmail accts you might have and check under "My Account"?
    I have a feeling you might've migrated to another acct.. it happened to me back on my OG Droid and I had to fix it.

    Ok whatever was going on is resolved now. Either they fixed it that fast or there was just a glitch somewhere momentarily. Thanks guys.

    glad it's resolved :)

    was there anything you did in the interim? even if you dont think it was related it might be a good reference if others have the same issue later on.

    Only thing I did differently was hit the My Apps button in the Market app instead of searching for the app I purchased. That's when I saw my purchases, and then went back to the website and they were there as well.

    I've been having a similar problem. My root apps, roottools, rom manager, bootstrap, ect..., all show as purchased. But my apps not requiring root, betterkeyboard, juice defender plus, camera360pro, ect..., show as not purchased. What's up?
    Also, my 3G coverage is about half compared to my droid x. Another problem my battery life. After a full charge it only took me about 2 hours to go down to 30 percent. Does anyone have any answers? Thanks everyone.

    Got this text about the same time costco activated the phone. Maybe it was related

    I am experiencing the same issue on my Bionic. I only have one gmail address, and de-linked my dinc from my accounts. Random apps that I downloaded to bionic seem to have a broken link. Common trait is that they seem to be apps that were moved to the bionic's media area (internal sd card). The icon for the app is still shown on my home screen, but if flashes that message "Application is not installed on your phone.". Also, the icon is no longer present in the "All Apps" drawer. Weird. Any ideas?
