    If I root my Hero, I understand that it voids my warranty.

    Is it possible, then, to restore the phone to how my network supplied it to me, if I need to return it for repair, without them knowing that it had previously been rooted?

    Also... if I do root my phone and/ or upgrade Android on it, what happens to my paid-for applications? Does the Market automatically know which ones I've paid for and allow me to download them again?
