    As long as you use the same Gmail account, everything should restore. Contacts would depend on if you synced to Google or not. Paid apps will still download, and you will not have to re purchase them.

    The apps will restore automatically if you have a Google account. I did it last night...and purchased apps are designed to run on as many Android devices as you have at no additional cost. That's the policy at Google Play. You can see their policy online. I have paid apps running on 2-3 devices, with only one purchase. That's how the apps are licensed. It just takes time to restore your data...

    If your contacts are in the cloud, you're good to go and these days, most everyone syncs contacts with their e-mail accounts...

    Try wiping the system cache partition. Always worth a try, and you won't lose any personal data or settings.
