    Everytime I hard reset my phone, my applications redownload on their own. I do not want this. I uncheck the back up my data option under privacy and it still happens. How can I stop this? :mad:

    Greetings rllong1,

    I'm not sure which software version or device you are using, but in my privacy settings there are two options...

    1. Back up my data.
    2. Automatic restore

    I'm guessing that you have to un-check Auto restore.

    Hope this helps. Welcome to the forums.

    I'm using a Droid Pro now, but this hasnt happened on any other phone. I had to hard reset then skip the initial login. After that it worked.
