On my way to work this morning, I did my usual routine...grab the phone off the charger, turn it on, put it in its holder and head out the door. Get to work 45 minutes later, grab the phone to check email only to find it is really hot. It looks like it's going through a reboot cycle or something. Then after about 5 minutes of trying to figure out what it going on, it asks me all the original setup questions - like English?, shows how to use the on-screen keyboard, set up facebook (etc) accounts, link to my Google account, et. al. After all that, my worst fear was realized...it LOST ALL OF MY DATA. Well, except for my contacts which was downloaded from my Google account. No phone call history, no email information, no application data, nothing.
To say the least, this is a little, no a LOT disconcerting. I guess the saving grace is that at least the market place remembers which apps I've already purchased so I won't have to buy them again.
Any idea what happened?
