    I believe that currently the only way to get round this is to bypass the CID checks with the GoldCard method. I haven't read reports of any other method working with T-mobile devices, unfortunately.

    Shouldn't lose them if you log in with your Google account afterwards, they'll be there to download again. If you're bothered, buy my backup pro, it'll back up all your apps. And everything else, actually. It's worth the money. :)
