A couple of months ago my wonderful Droid decided to spam a thousand people in my company from my Gmail account.
I didn't want it to happen again so I did a factor reset on my phone and canceled my Google account and created a new one with a different Gmail address.
Last night I realized I hadn't seen a Market update in a long time. I tried to go to the Market and realized it was married to the Gmail account that no longer exists.
How screwed am I? When I get a new phone will there be no way to get my paid apps back with my new account?
Burns me up that so much Google dependency is built in with (what seems like) no recourse for a situation like this.
