Video: How To: Redownload Applications from Ovi Store

| March 21, 2011 | 9 Replies

Nokia Support Videos have uploaded a slew of videos, this one showing how to re-download applications that you have already previously downloaded from Ovi Store.

You might need to do this if you:

  • Swap to a new (compatible) phone
  • format/hard reset your current phone. This might be down to you or one of the unfortunate handset related bugs (e.g. fails to start, requiring you to hard reset)
  • uninstall app and need to redownload


  1. Launch Ovi Store
  2. Sign in to your Account
  3. Select the application (find from “My Stuff” or you can find it manually)
  4. Click Download (hopefully it won’t ask you to repurchase)

Now I don’t know if Ovi Store still has that 5 re-download limit policy.
