I just got my new 925 as a replacement for an ever failing 8x. Due to the need to send back my 8x 4 times since release date I went through the reinstall of all my apps a few times. Now though windowsphone.com > purchase history will not reinstall the app, stating one of two different messages. "This app is not available for all phones. Try downloading on your phone." or " We can't send apps to your phone right now. Please try again later."
If however I browse to app via the store and try to reinstall (it will fail to install) it will send me an email with a hyperlink that will allow me get everything back.. so no issues, just a longer process - except for any app that I had purchased, it wants to charge me again now.
With the 8x when I reinstalled WPcentral's app it did not want to recharge me for it, now it does.
Am I completely freaking bonkers and missing something I should have know or are other people having this issue as well?

It's still a huge pain though, if you want to install a bunch of things at once. 8.1/Blue really needs to bring a bulk reinstall feature similar to how you can in Windows 8, where you just select apps you want to install from a list of all the installs you've ever made, and just hit a single button.

OP, I feel your pain. I went through the same thing when I switched from my Lumia 810 to my 920. There were actually a few apps not recognized as those I'd already installed on my phone, not including the ones that were exclusive to the 810 through T-Mobile. It was annoying. Luckily, those were all free so it was easy to get them back and of course, I didn't have to pay for anything again.
