    OP, I hope I'm wrong and you get your apps back. But if you were having problems with your Droid it may very well have been the apps that caused the problem. I'd rather start out fresh and get the unpaid apps on an as needed basis.

    They automatically come back when you log into your gmail account for the first time with all your apps.

    A wipe and a new phone is the same thing. Wiping the phone is like geting a new phone, you are starting from scratch. I got all of mine back when I did a wipe.

    I don't think this is guaranteed a number of people including myself never got our free app automatically re-downloaded upon receiving a new phone/wiping. They all showed up in the market but none of them re-downloaded. For this reason I recommend backing up with Astro if your unrooted or Titanium Backup if rooted (Titanium is a godsend for me since I tend to try out ROMs a lot).

    +1 mine didn't either when I wiped. Even some if my paid ones didn't. I was able to download them again and then it realized I paid so I didn't have to again..
