    Bionic will be here by 10:30 tomorrow morning. Is the easiest way to reinstall my apps just signing into my account on the market and choosing which apps to reinstall? Or should I prepare to write down the ones I really want and do it manually? My contacts and everything else should sync up through google, just wasn't sure about the apps, both paid and free.

    Just look at your installed list in the Market. Install what you want. Easy.

    You'll love it!

    For me only paid apps transfer. I'd write down any non paid apps so you can remember.

    The free ones didn't show up on mine...all the paid ones were there, and your contacts will sync through google IF you saved them as Google contacts....easiest way to reinstall all your apps is being rooted and using titanium backup, but that's only if your current phone is rooted

    You'll have to redownload all nonpaid apps.

    ^^Wrong, my Bionic has expanded my mind and my possibilities infinitely.


    I'd say it's worth it to do a quick root, install titanium backup, backup everything, unroot. Root your bionic, reinstall everything, and if you don't want to stay rooted, just immediately unroot after. May sound like a lot, but even for a beginner will probably take no longer than 10-15 minutes. Opposed to 30-45 minutes of trying to remember/reinstall/re-set up your menus etc etc.

    You can also use AppMonster, which I believe backups AND restores for free and unrooted, but when I tried it I had a lot of problems and had to install them all manually through AppMonster. They were all there in a list but wouldn't install automatically, so I just had to select each one and install. With TB, it's extremely easy to do.

    If you can't remember which apps you should re-install, then you don't need them.

    Titanium Backup can create a list of all installed apps and versions and you can email it to yourself.

    You do realize that he's a spammer, correct?

    you can also go to the android market website on your computer, sign into google, and then ALL of the apps that you have ever downloaded will be there (paid and non-paid). then all you have to do is click on them on your computer and they will install to your phone.. kinda cool and goes pretty quick.
