    I'm considering trying one of the ROMs available here for my behold 2.

    Will I lose all the apps and other user data I have ?

    If so, is there a way to save the apps/information and then restore it after the flash ?

    I have a few paid apps in particular that I'd prefer not to lose.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hmm, well it depends on a few factors. You will not have to re-purchase paid apps after a flash. When you look them up in market, they will indicate "purchased." You should be able to download them as if they were freeware. As far as everything else, lets start with: what version of android do you have on the phone currently?

    I've tried many different ROM's for my behold 2, and I didn't lose any. You would only lose apps if you reset the phone.

    Well I've tried every rom available for the behold 2, and thats why I say it depends. If you are looking to try any of BH_MAN's work, you will lose all apps and data, as his odin images will re-write the user partition, as well as reset automatically after flashing, so you will have re-download them. Anything based on the ota, you should be ok.
