Default Restoring after Market OTA downloads

Please Login to Remove!

Ok so I am new on the forums, and I'm sure I've posted this in the wrong place so please forgive me..

I have a number of OTA downloaded games and shortcuts on my 8100 pearl and I'm about to upgrade to the new os, IF I loose them, or if I need to reformat my memory card how do I get the games etc back without having to pay for the software again??

TIA!

All you have to do is back up the device and then upgrade the OS. After all that; you have to restore the device with all the applications, 3rd party software and etc. your done!

Back up alone will not get the 3rd party data.
