Buying app on Cydia...
A bit confused here.
But, is Cydia like the App Store, i.e. when I buy an app, if I ever have to reload\get a new device, I'll be able to re-download my apps, free?
I've only ever tried this once, and when I tried to re-install an app that I'd previously paid for, it wanted me to pay again.
Any ideas\thoughts please...

Most devs will allow you to transfer a license to a new device, but sometimes you need to email them about it--and I assume you need to use the same login info for the Cydia store that used to buy the app? Also, Cydia recently updated to include a list of your purchased apps for easy reinstalls, so that might help. (It's under Manage My Account or something like that.)

Apologies in advance if this has been addressed in another thread and I was unable to find it.
I am still waiting for my ViPhone4 to arrive, but was wondering how do you pay for Cydia apps? Do you pay through the iPhone's browser via PayPal/credit card?

However, I am having trouble with purchasing apps from Cydia.
1.) I followed the instructions quoted above; I logged in using my Google e-mail address that is associated with my Amazon account. When I do this it takes me to a page called "Account"
2.) The only area available to click on is called "Installable Purchases"
3.) When I click on this, it takes me to the "Purchases" page. However, nothing is listed here.
4.) What is the next step? I tried to purchase Haptic Pro from the cydia store by clicking on it. When I did, it shows a msg. that I need to pay for this.....
Apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere and I was unable to find it.
Thanks in advance!

When you tap Purchase, it should take you to a screen where you have three option.
two are Amazon options and the third is a PayPal option. I don't recall the difference in the first two. I always use the PayPal option. When you tap on the PayPal option, it goes to PayPal's pay site. You log in and click Pay Now. You'll then get a message that tells you to tap close at the top. When you do, you are taken back to the page where you can now tap Install instead of Purchase.
Hope this helps,
