    The GPS is pissing me off. haha and among other things. I wanna try and reset everything.. i have a few questions though.

    what would be the easiest fastest way to do it? I have all my info synced with Google so contacts and such im good.

    I have a few Paid App's how would i do to get them back?

    Menu -> Settings -> Privacy -> Factory data reset -> Reset phone.

    Yes, as long as you use the same login credentials for the Android Market, you will get all your paid apps back.

    Reading the Captivate FAQ:

    Resetting/Restoring - CapFAQ

    They're tied to your Google account. When you return to the Marketplace you'll be able to re-install them for free. Some apps you buy outside of the Marketplace and give you a key... you should still have that key/email and can use that to re-register the app.
