As long as you setup your same Google account on the new phone, you will have your purchased applications listed under "my apps" in the Android Market when you open the application. They will stay there listed as "purchased" until you download and install them. I still have one listed that way on my Eris after factory resetting it over a month ago.

He had to change his password but he has the same account. They're not listed. Only what he put on himself after getting his hands on the replacement phone. One of the first things I did when I saw he was reloading apps whas to go there.

It doesn't sound like the same google account was put in as the primary account. Does he use multiple google accounts?

I think you can log into the Google account from a pc and go to Google Checkout and see if the applications are listed there as purchased.

I haven't needed to change my password so I don't know if that will affect anything.
