That's the basic problem with DRM. I know with Verizon if you
have applications, downloads etc on your phone from one of the
Verizon Get it Now sites, if you upgrade to a new phone you are
entitled to download them to the new phone.
Not exactly the same as DRM, but similar.
Of course this does lock you into buying a Verizon phone again
which may not be what you want to do.
