Hi how do you do that?
I have a Samsung Focus and when I tried an HTC7 and I logged in with my Live ID the App I had on my Focus did not showed up on the HTC.
Why?

cause you have to re-downlaod them every timne you HARDRESET / Get a new Phone

and you also need to start over your games. they dont have a cloud service for saved games yet or apps ( dont evan know if they ever will )

so open ZUNE on your PC to see witch apps/games you use to have .. then start searching and re-instaling from your phone.. lol :(

yeah i know , alot of people ( including my self ) have complained about this in countless treads/posts.

i sure hope they fix it in the APOLO or Tango Update next year. or atlease be able to re-loaded them with Zune ( ont he PC ) Automaticly like a SYNC.

Any apps you DL's via Zune will auto install after a reset, anything you get through the marketplace will have to be manually reinstalled. Optimal no, but it is what it is.

Just a guess, but maybe you can only download apps via zune in the US? I know a lot of crap is region specific...

More on topic: I would love if there were some kind of backup option in zune. That's one big thing I miss about my blackberry. I could backup, update, update to unofficial OSes and who knows what else, but I'd never lose my data because every time all my apps would be back, all my settings the way I left them, and all my messages would be there, too.
