Why Is There No Option to Install Some Applications on My New Phone?

Environment

  • All Republic Wireless 3.0 Phones
  • Upgrading from Republic Wireless 1/2.0 Phones
  • Google Play Store

Answer

Applications that were on your prior 1/2.0 phone will show in your new phone's Play Store under "All apps."  This list will include all applications you've ever used with your Google account.

Any application that doesn't show the "Install" option isn't compatible with your current phone.  This usually includes apps that were pre-installed with your prior phone which have been replaced with different applications to provide the same functions or services.  

Additional Notes

You may tap the "x" to remove these apps from your list
