Default A Warning (or maybe not) about OS upgrading and game loss

Please Login to Remove!

Over the last week, I've upgraded my 8320's OS from the original 4.2 to 4.5.0.55 and just now to 4.5.0.69. With each upgrade, I've lost Texas Hold'em 3 (Magmic). I re-purchased it on the first attempt, but I'm not too anxious to buy it a third time. I'm hoping bplay will send me a new activation code, which I've requested via email. Will advise on the response in case anyone else is suffering the heartache of deactivated programs.

And now, some CYA...

- My apologies if this has been covered to death and is common knowledge. A search didn't reveal much, unless I suck at innerwebs.

- Another apology if I've chosen the wrong section to post this in.

I don't know about TH3, does it have a license or registration key?

I lose all my third party licenses on upgrading, and simply re-input them afterward.

Wirelessly posted (8320 Titanium)

I have never had to re-buy codes for any magmic games. Or any other third party software either...the old codes have always worked.

Well, crud. I'm a doofus. Just plugged in the activation code that came with THK2 and it worked. Let this be a lesson to anyone who doubts that saving old e-receipts can be useful.

Thanks.

Put your Password Keeper app to some good use... store them there.

That will always get backed up and restored on a BB OS upgrade... and then the code is at your finger tips.

Yep, I always keep those. They should work after each upgrade. They may not work when you switch devices, though.

Most are keyed to the PIN. I have found that most developers (assuming you don't abuse the privelege) will have mercy if you've moved to a new device and issue a new code for a new PIN at no charge. I don't know that Handango or another vendor would be so understanding, I usually go directly to the developer.

I'm in the process of acquiring a new license key from Handango because I switched devices. They seem willing to provide a new key, but the first one they gave me didn't work. I double-checked that I sent them the new PIN correctly so it doesn't appear to be my bad. I'm currently awaiting their next reply.

You might recover a couple bucks if you sell your second license key

Unless the developer was smart enough to include a PIN verification during the activation process.
