    I recently got the vibrant and am having the same issues that everyone is having. I tried some of the fixes for the GPS but still not working. I want to try one of the fixes and want to do a factory reset before I do it.
    How do I backup stuff like Sims 3 and Avatar and the other things that came with this phone? Will the touchwiz still be there?
    When I pay for apps, does it tie it to my gmail account so I can download them again later if I delete them?

    Your paid apps will link automatically to your google account. When you reset the phone you can sign in again...

    There are also good free backup apps out there to backup all phone content for resets, switching phones, or in case you lose your phone. Just go the market and download one...

    Hope that helps

    Sims 3 and Avatar arent going anywhere. No need to worry about those. I did a reset as well and the apps that came with the phone will be there again. In fact, your photos will still be in there too.

    What is the best backup app out there? Do they even backup your settings and app preferences too?
