    Watch out for this one. Today i attempted to do my monthly wipe of the cache partition. I do know exactly what i'm doing, however, when i hit the correct buttons...the phone did a complete system wipe. It started like it had just come out of the box. I did have everything backed up, both on the phone and the computer, so nothing was lost, but i thought that i would mention it, as my phone is reloading all my apps, just in case anyone else had this problem. It's a great lesson to anyone who doesn't have their phone's info backed up.:p

    Good reason to keep everything backed up on a routine basis. So glad you did, grunt0300. Phew!
