    youll most likely have another list created with the new phone. just click on your old list, check all and copy over to your new list. then sync with the phone.

    why is it making me pay for apps that I already bought? Do I have to buy all my paid apps over again? That would be very frustrating.

    Once you buy them they are bought. You will not have to pay for them again. Does it say the price next to them on the website? or is it in the market? if it is in the market you might have set up your phone with a different email than the original.

    I am not sure what you mean by the website, do you mean appbrain?

    In the market it has the price next to it and I have to go through the whole buying process again to get the apps.

    Did you make sure that you registerd your phone exactly the same as last time? cause that is weird that you have to purchase again. and by website i did mean appbrain.

    ya i used the same email address to set up the phone as before. I emailed a couple of the app developers to see if I needed to purchase them again. would seem silly, it is automatic on my iphone.

    When I first got my EVO I had problems with the market and other items because I had multiple google accounts. I had to delete one and merge the others. It wasn't very intuitive. I actually had to delete my AppBrain account from my phone and the net to start over with that so they would synch up.

    You shouldn't have to pay for apps again since they're supposed to be tied to your Google account and not the phone, but I've not had to replace a phone to find out.
