Xbox Live Account Hacked... Now Phone Apps won't Update

My Xbox live account was hacked, which changed the gamertag associated with the windows live ID. This hack broke the link between my gamertag and windows live ID and now when my Phone Apps have an update they won't apply them as the error message indicates the app isn't in my purchase history and I have to buy the application again.

I have subsequently got control of my xbox live account and gamertag again, but support had to associate that gamertag with a temporary WIndows LIve ID. In 30 days I will be able to finally link the original gamertag with the original windows live ID... at that point will the Phone App updates start working, or as my "purchase history" been wiped out permenantly and I will have to re-purchase the applications?
