When I change a Microsoft account, on the new one, do I lose all the apps that I bought with the previous account?


Yes. Your purchases are tied to your Microsoft Account, so if you reset the phone, and set up with a different account, your purchased content/apps/etc. would be lost.

  • what if then I reconnect with the first account, do I have the apps back (considering it is fully synchronized)? – eeadev Jul 24 '15 at 9:51

    If you set a new phone up (or one that's been reset), your purchased content becomes available again (unless it has been removed from the store, for whatever reason) – Rowland Shaw Jul 24 '15 at 9:52
