    All of my paid apps from my former phone show in my 'Google Wallet' on my desktop computer. In another post someone said that those apps could be "pushed" to my Maxx. Can someone tell me how that's done?

    Thanks!

    Sign into your new phone with same Gmail account you used on your old phone. Then you just go to the market app on your new phone, hit menu, select my apps, and all your paid apps should be there for you to download.

    Thanks, Ziggie. This is one hell of a phone. I really loved my Incredible, but the build quality of the Maxx, combined with the unbelievable battery and markedly faster speed of 4LTE...well, I'm sure not going to miss my Incredible!

    Awesome!!!! I was wondering the same thing. I was thinking that I was going to lose my paid apps or have to re-purchase them.

    So I am not able to do this with the Galaxy Nexus. I have done this before with other phones, but for some reason when I look at the "My Apps" I only see what I have downloaded manually so far, plus the Google branded apps (Google+, Maps, etc.) that need to be updated. I had AppMonster installed on my Droid X previously, but of course I can't just move the SD card over to the Nexus because the Nexus doesn't take SD cards. I love the phone, and will love it even more once I get over this hurdle.

    Any thoughts?

    As long as you are still using the same Gmail Account that your purchased the apps with on your previous phone, you can just search the app your previously bought, and simply re-download it. It wont double charge you or anything.

    Thank you Yonnor, I really appreciate the response. I know I can download them manually, but you are talking to a "heavy user" and that means I have to manually search for and download about 100 apps or more. That is not something I care to step into if I have another option.

    Any other thoughts?

    Not a problem I use it all the time. It alot easier for me to pick and choose what apps I want on the phone as opposed to getting them all
