    Does anyone know how to delete all phone data from google so that when i perform a factory reset that my settings and applications DO NOT get reinstalled?

    Normally the reason to do a factory reset is to start fresh.

    TIA!

    I haven't tried it on the Droid 2 but with the original Droid, from the first screen that asked you to login tap the corners of the screen clockwise starting with the top left. This will skip the login, and then go to settings > accounts & sync and turn off background data. Then sign into the market and download whatever you want. You'll want to turn background sync back on afterwards.

    Go to market and uninstall all the apps. Then do reset, and they wont be reinstalled.
