    I did a factory reset because i thought it would fix a number of problems i had before and after the 2.1 OTA.

    1. HTC's weather app wouldn't update on it's own or manually (sometimes) (not a force close issue)

    2. Mobile network issue. Places where i would get 3-4 bars got 1-2 (sometimes 3) and the "D" under 3G mostly changes to the up down arrow. This was on 1.5 and might have to wait maybe another day to see if this continue on 2.1.

    3. apps is my main issue. I know all the apps are in the download section on the market and i saved my apps in the SD card but when I reinstalled, scores and profiles from different apps and not there. Is there a way to restore the apps to where there they where before the factory reset instead of the apps acting like it's been just downloaded.

    No one has any suggestions? I searched the foums but didn't find anything about restoring apps to the way it was before, not like u just downloaded it.

    1 - From the homescreen go to menu -> setting -> general sync settings and see if autosync is on

    2 - I redid the PRL download and it appears to have helped (*228 option 2)

    3 - Nope, a factory reset wipes all the configuration and stored data. Unless you had a backup app that saved the app's data you are SOL

    Clear all the cache on the apps not functioning right.
    Go into Settings>Applications>Manage Applications then click the app and then click "Clear Cache"

    The signal issue is known and currently has no fix.

    +1 on the cache clearing, but to add data reset as well for each app.

    The "signal issue" seems to be a display one, and not an actual degradation of strength of signal, at least on my phone. It seems that the OTA took the polling apparatus out of calibration as related to the bars in the notification area.

    Only data stored on your SD card for an app will return after a factory reset. If the app you are talking about stored its data in internal memory, then it is gone.

    ok, thanks OTD for the reply. One more question regarding the weather. When i go into the settings for weather, and check the update auto (every 1 hour) it doesn't stay checked when i turn off the phone.
