    Well I had to reset my phone therefore I lost all of the apps and all that I have purchased.So I was wondering if there was a way in which I can get the apps back in which I paid for. I really don't want to have to re-buy everything. So if there is a way in which I can re-download everything with out re-paying that would be nice.

    Any paid apps do not need to be paid for again. They will show up in your downloads when you reload your phone after a reset. There is no re-buying paid apps :)

    On a side note, there is an app called MyBackUpPro that will backup all apps, paid or not. It is a life saver :)

    Did you sign into your gmail account? Because that is where all of your paid apps are saved to, your account. I've done a factory reset several times and everytime I just sign back into my account and they show up. They should be there. Did you make a back up before you did a factory reset? Please say yes.

    No i was locked out of my phone and the only way I could get back in was by accessing my google account... Well there is a bug and that didn't let me sign in so I had to do a factory reset. Therefore some of my stuff is backed up the rest isn't which sucks...

    Try MyBackup

    There is an app in the Market called MyBackUp...does a nice job of backing up apps...there is a free version that will work for 30 days, then you have to buy a 'PRO' version for $5. I have used it and it works great.dancedroiddancedroid
