    No. You will have to re-install them of course, but all of your app purchases are stored in your google account. You won't have to pay for them again.

    Just don't wipe like 20 times. I lost track of most of my apps after tinkering with my phone for a few days...not too big of a problem. I had all the important ones retained in my history, but somehow a bunch just disappeared.

    Even if you change to a different android phone, your paid apps will follow.

    I had to do a factory reset to resolve an MMS problem. Lo and behold, after I rebooted my apps were still in the app drawer. I had to reconfigure my screens and reactivate some (Yelp, POP3 email, Facebook and Tripit come to mind) but otherwise, it wasn't a big deal.

    Yeah, It actually automatically downloaded everything itself.

    What about free apps? Do those follow along or do you have to re-download all of them?

    This is a good question, and something I'm interested in. On a BlackBerry, each phone as a "PIN" that identifies it so you can (sometimes) easily transfer paid apps from one phone to the other. Is there such a thing with the Droid? Or is it tied to a Gmail account or something?

    as far as wiping the device, when I go back to the market, it has all the free apps I've downloaded in the past to re-download, but Im not sure if it does the same when transferring devices
