    Hence the words "factory data reset" lol. That option resets the phone to how it comes straight from the factory.

    But if you do that and sign in to the same google gmail account your aps should show up in the downloads section of the market? At least that is what I understood. You still can download them without having to buy them again.

    Try signing on to your Gmail account. From what I understand, that's where the Marketplace gets your info

    Once you sign into your Gmail account all your apps are in the Market downloads. The only exception to that would be if you did a hard factory reset, even then your paid apps would still be in the Market downloads. Just not your free ones.
