    Having a few issues with my hero. Nothing too serious.

    Considering a factory reset to clear out the dross from installing and deleting lots of applications.

    If I do this:

    1 - will all my apps be there in 'my downloads' or will I have to search for them all over again?

    2 - if I have bought applications from market, will I have to buy them again?

    1 - the only apps that will show up in your downloads will be the ones you purchased

    2 - you won't have to buy apps again

    Thanks for the response. Last question, what happens to apps that I have paid for if I simply uninstall them? Can I go and install them again later without paying again?

    Not sure if its different with the Hero, but with the Eris, I did a factory reset, and ALL of my downloaded apps were in the market "My Downloads" section. The only ones that were gone were the ones I have added via .apk file.

    I did my reset and all the apps were there in market the first time I opened it.

    This seems to differ from person to person, for some reason. Only apps I have purchased show up in My Downloads for me as well.
    To answer the question about uninstalling a paid app, you will be able to download any purchased app again for free if you uninstall it.
