    Hey guys so I just lost my incredible at work, and was wondering if because it's tied into my gmail account and all that if I could automatically re-download all of my paid apps etc, but mainly I'm concerned with all of my contacts etc...

    does it do this automatically or will i have to manually re-download my apps etc..

    contacts/calender should come back automatically.

    Apps are another story. Unless you had appbrain, or something similar, you'll have to start from scratch (although you shouldn't have to pay for any you already bought).

    Make sure VZW blacklists you old phone...

    The Android Market knows what you've installed too. Go to the Market and and hit your phones menu button. There will be a choice there for Downloads. I believe that this is attached to your account and not a specific device.
