Help with purchased games on iPad

[Post New]by DSmith70 on Mar 2, 12 8:45 AM
I had bought numerous big fish games for my iPad and recently updated to iOS 5 and I lost all my games. When I go into my purchase history on my iPad I redownloaded fairway solitaire and it's asking me to repurchase the game and all the golf store items I had purchased. Will I have to repay for all my big fish games again? If so bye bye big fish as I won't be buying your games no more. Appreciate any help.

Hi DSmith70,

Welcome to the pond!

As long as you are only "re-purchasing" the same golf store items that are already in your iTunes Purchase History, you will not actually be charged again. If you have any more questions, please feel free to contact our Customer Support team.

(Also, I'm going to go ahead and move this thread over to our Fairway Forum since your question is specific to this game.)

Hope this helps!

Thx bfgHondo. I went ahead and pushed the buy button and it came up that I had already purchased it and would I like to download for free, so goes for the items I bought in the golf store. The only problem was I had to start from scratch. Hoping this works for all the big fish games I bought. Thx again and hope this helps someone out.

I had fairway solitaire on my iPad and I downloaded it on my iPhone. When I tried using the already purchased button it said I could not download it. So then I read here that it would not charge me if I bought it again. It charged me and I not thrilled. I don't have anything in my store that I already bought.

I am having this issue with "Puppetshow: mystery of joyville". I have already bought the game for iphone. I upgraded the phone so had to re-download. But when I go to the option to purchase now, I only get a popup asking me to buy the game. What can be done about this?
