    I got a new phone because for some reason, my old one died. Sim card and battery are transferred into the new phone. Is it supposed to take a long time to download my apps all at once now that they've all started? I've never done this and I don't know if that's normal or not.

    The market will queue all the apps to be download and then download 2-3 at a time until all are downloaded and installed. I would suggest getting on wifi or 4G and put the phone down for a bit. Depending on how many apps you are downloading it could take a while. Just check it every so often and the time will go by in a flash

    OK. They all still say downloading, so it probably will be a while.

    Edit: How long can it go and still be normal? I'm curious because it's been over an hour now. At what point should I cancel and try downloading them all one by one?

    If it still is downloading I would cancel it or restart the phone sorry was away from af for a while

    I tried that and started to do it one at a time but it still sits on 'DOWNLOADING'. Why won't it download all the way??? Is it the signal strength???

    No clue, I've never had that issue can you get on a Wi-Fi network?

    I do have the wireless my laptop is on. I'm going to try again later or in the morning, it's not uncommon to have signal problems here for some reason. It drives me nuts with RSS feed reading, trying to get photos up.

    I would try the Wi-Fi or canceling the downloads and doing then one by one it shouldn't take that long try the Wi-Fi first. Let it try overnight if you want to

    How do you mass-download them? I would love to see that option on the market, under "My Apps" - little check box and then just press install all.

    I'm gonna try at work, the signal is stronger there sometimes. If not, whatever damaged my phone could have hurt my SIM card too :(

    Things have started to download, though it's really slow. I canceled what was still going on tonight and I'll pick it up tomorrow; I hate to leave it on and downloading all night even though you said I could. Mostly because it's been on all day with only a little rest.

    If you've enabled the "Back up my data" option in Settings/Privacy (and the complementary option "Automatic restore", which is a set-up default) then it will happen once you've signed-in to your Google account.
