    I want to change the gmail account that I have associated with my G1. I know how to do this and I know that I will lose my Contacts and need to back them up first.

    However, I haven't been able to find anything on line which says what will happen with all my installed apps if I change the gmail account. Will I still have those apps installed on my G1 after the gmail change, or will I have to re-install all of them after the gmail switch?


    PS: The reason I want to change my gmail account is because I have a Google Voice account that is associated with a gmail address that is different from the one I'm currently using on my G1, and the Google Voice Android app can't access that account from my G1. It appears that I have to associate the same gmail address with my G1 and with Google Voice before the Google Voice app can function on my G1. Since it's impossible to change the gmail address of an existing Google Voice account, I am forced to change the gmail address that my G1 uses.
