Games and Apps Don't Transfer?

by momcha / October 15, 2007 9:02 AM PDT

Help me find the reasoning in this: you purchase a game or application for your phone and "own the rights" to it as opposed to paying a monthly fee for it. You decide you want a new phone (same carrier). Despite the fact that your content (games, applications) is compatible with your new phone, you have to repurchase it. Totally makes no sense. I have Sprint, the stuff I've purchased is in my content manager. I "own the rights" to several games and applications. If I buy a new phone, what happens to my content manager? Does the content manager get deleted when you get a different phone? Anybody??

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
