There's two parts to the "issue" at hand, so let me just explain. I've been using the stable Froyo BB for a while now. I tried GPA a while back, but had issues with it, so I went back to what I knew worked for me. Since Peter released a Gingerbread-based BB, I decided it was time to move forward. Wiped everything, installed, no issues. Signed into my Google account, and it proceeded to download a ton of apps, including ones that I hadn't used in months, and leaving others off the list entirely. OK, no problem, cleaned up the installed apps. Then I proceeded to import a bunch of app data, text messages, and whatnot via Titanium.
The next day I suffered random data disconnects. The signal bar would show full, but white instead of green with no 1x or 3G icon, and the data connection would be unavailable to apps. Rebooting solved it, but I was forced to reboot three or four times the first day because it kept happening. Tired of such shenanigans, I wiped the phone again, re-installed BB, and logged into Google convinced that I had screwed up by re-importing too much from my Titanium backup and screwed something up in the process.
Thing is, this time it didn't download any apps for me. It also didn't import LAN settings, browser bookmarks, bluetooth pairings, nothing. Tonight, I went back to my Nandroid backup of my Froyo based BB install, and all is back to normal. It's not perfect, but it works, and all my settings are there.
1. So, did I do something wrong that Google decided not give me my apps and settings again like it had the first time? Can I see that list somewhere online and edit it so I don't get a ton of apps I no longer use?
2. Does the current gingerbread based BB have data problems, or did I muck it up somehow? FWIW, I didn't have any data issues today, but I connect to various WiFi networks and bluetooth devices throughout the day. I really didn't want to have to set all that up all over again.
