I saw elsewhere that you're supposed to uninstall the app from your old phone first. That won't work because my old phone died unexpectedly. There are other help threads on this topic but Google Play has changed its web interface since then, so the information is outdated.
in google play, when you click install, on the botttom of the pop up with all the permissions, there is a box with the title "choose a device" click that, then select your new device.

I've replaced my microsd card, but I can't install Titanium or anything else, because the Play Store erroneously thinks it's already installed and the web interface won't let me uninstall anything. I don't have the Play Store app on my phone - it got lost along with everything else. Any help, please? Thx.
cant you uninstall apps with the system settings?
Press Thanks if i helped!
