Only 5 re-installs allowed before WP7 apps are charged again: Update–tested, not true


According to Microsoft, after uninstalling and re-installing an application 5 times, the sixth time the user will be charged once again for the privilege of using the app.

Given that Microsoft has suggested removing applications as a solution for update woes, we  find this restriction rather ridiculous.

Update:  Having tested it with an application, after 7 install and uninstall cycles, I have not been asked yet to pay again for the application. This one can be filed in the round filing cabinet.
