[Q] Bought new phone - Google Play says "Your device already has this item installed"
I just got a new phone and went to Google Play web interface to install all my old software. None of it will install because Google claims "Your device already has this item installed". How do I install it without using the slow, tedious on-phone app?
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are other help threads on this topic but Google Play has changed its web interface since then, so the information is outdated.
