    So I just got a new Windows 8 phone and when I go to the google play store to download any of the apps that I had on my old phone, it says that they're already installed on my new phone when they're not. Anyone know how to fix this? Should I do a factory reset?

    No, you simply need to update Google Play Store to reflect the new phone. Go to Play.google.com and hit the Gear on the top right, then choose "Settings". You'll see the screen below. There you will edit out the old phone, and if it shows up - edit in the new one.

    Thank you, I found it. There's only one there and it's nickname is "Unnamed Device", but when I hit edit and then update it does nothing, just goes back to edit.

    Really? It shows up on the google play store but it just says it's already installed... The only app I need is PdaNet+, do you know of any way to get it on here?
