Thanks for the advice. Agreed +1. I backed it all up using 3rd party apps (one copy in pc another copy in memory card). I normally don't subscribe to any data plans/GPRS and use internet in my laptop (which is better equipped to handle malware) except for downloading apps which erstwhile are not available except Android Market. I was just trying to advice "gknayak9" that his apps etc are now history............any chances of recovery, btw ?
