    Apps are backed up to the sdcard. Switch the card.

    They aren't if he didn't use an app like Titanium Backup.

    To the OP, usually only the paid ones stay backed up with Google. The rest you have to find and add yourself

    To me, Google retaining your apps is not a backup, so when the OP said backup, I assumed they were referring to an actual backup.

    Make sure that you're using the same email account that you used to purchase the apps.

    I hear ya, but it seems like there is a common misconception that Google backs up apps that you've downloaded from the market. And sometimes it actually does, but its rare and can't be counted on
