    Hi.

    Updated to 2.2 after using the option on the phone. Updated fine, but now find that the market app is missing. The Facebook app is gone too.

    Any way I can get the market app back without doing a reset?

    Thanks, I did the hard reset, Market and Facebook are back!

    However, after installing 2.2, I find that I don't have the 'Privacy' option in Settings. Not there after the hard reset either. Any idea why?

    Before the hard reset, I shifted some apps to the sd card. How do I get them back now without redownload?

    you have to redownload the apps
    moving apps to sd is only for storage i think
    privacy options do not show in froyo

    Thanks again. I will redownload the apps. Any idea how I can delete the ones I moved to SD card before the reset? Not sure how they're stored on the sd card.

    Not quite true, privacy settings are there, they are just hidden.

    on your desktop press the search button and type in privacy (filter by app if you have to), you should see "privacy" with a cog gear next to it, but there's not much to it anymore as it should automatically backup/restore your data.

    Just a couple of things to add, firstly its worth looking at the privacy option as when mine updated to 2.2 the back up option had been switched off!!
    secondly when you type "privacy" in the search box you must use the stock keyboard (if you dont already) as for some reason no other keyboard finds it??
