Not quite a noob
Re: Market doesn't recognize the apps I had on my last unit?!
It goes like this: every device that you register your account on, gets added to your history of registered devices on Google. If you have access to a computer, access the market from it, log in your account, go to your "My Library" and you'll see there all the apps you ever installed on your account (no matter the device you installed them on). Also you will see that will say "installed" under every each one. Click on the app, click on the button "installed" and you'll get the option to install to a different device. What I would do from this point on, is I would deactivate the devices that no longer belong to me. On your phone, the market sees only the apps that are installed on the phone, it does not see the ones you purchased and never installed. This is a huge oversight (pun intended) from Google. In Amazon's market you have a list of apps that are installed on your phone and one of ALL apps. Maybe the next update of market will address this. Good luck!
