    I recently wiped all my data and have been trying to get my apps which i paid for with my google account back.

    How do I get them back? Seems simple enough, but I have no idea what to do.

    Go to the market. Press the menu button, select downloads. They should all be in there.

    Actually, I've ran into another problem.

    I have two different google account and my droid is synched to both of them(the verizon store got my google account name wrong and made me a new one).

    The one the verizon rep made is the one with all of my accounts saved. When I go to downloads, I don't see any previously purchased apps because I guess my phone isn't synched only to that account.

    Anyone know what to do?

    Not much you can do. Apps are tied to the gmail account that you enter first in the phone.

    That would be correct. And there is nothing you can do about it if you want your paid apps. They are tied to that one google account that the Verizon rep made up for you.

    Just out of curiosity, didn't they ask you first if you had a gmail account? They did when I got mine.

    It was a present so they went ahead and made me another account.

    So, there's nothing I can do? I can't un-sync the account that I had before I got my droid and then download the apps?

    Sorry for the overabundance of questions, but if I were to factory reset the phone through settings > privacy would that remove my 2.2 I installed this morning?

    That seems like the only option, as it appears my non-verizon made gmail account is the first account I synched since doing a factory reset this morning.

    Thanks again...

    It is added, but it only lets you transfer apps from the initial account you sync to your phone.

    They shouldn't of done that. Verizon people. You can add your account on as the previous poster mentioned but your main gmail account will be the one Verizon put on there.

    Pretty big mistake by Verizon. They should have just sold the phone and not set it up until you got hold of it.

    Doing that should only remove the apps and stuff from the phone back to what would be the factory settings. If you do that you will lose all your data though and have to redownload the apps. You could try reflashing 2.2 if you want.

    They should be there in Downloads when you go to the market.

    You can try adding the google account you want, and then deleting the other account.

    So you are saying you want to change the account that links your phone to the marketplace?

    I thought you were saying you didn't have that account logged in oops. When I got my Droid they told me I HAD to create a new account for the phone because it wouldn't work with my old gmail account.

    I'm in the same shoes as you. i had to reformat my phone and afterwards i put in my account. but i forgot that when i first originally bought the phone, the verizon rep that activated my phone made me create a new Google account that i NEVER used (she said i could always change it). This account had all my apps and half of my contacts. It took my forever to figure out what the password was so i can get them all back. I hated the email address the Verizon lady made me too! it was my name with a bunch of numbers at the end. Its annoying because now i have MY google account that i use and then there's the Crappy google account they made me that i never use, but i have to have them both in my Accounts in order to get my calendar, apps, contacts, etc...

    i actually really HATE that about google. i wish there was a way to merge the accounts info/data/apps/whatever together so i can just use one address on my phone and not have to have two accounts. cause honestly, how professional is it to see an email from ex.johnk12345678@gmail.com

    so, basically, you're S.O.L. Your main account has to be the original account they created.
