app reload after wiping playbook?

Just want to doublecheck before I wipe my playbook...

 

If I have some apps both free and paid downloaded onto my playbook via a blackberry id, then wipe the playbook, when I set up the playbook again & sign in using the same blackberry id, app world should prompt me to reload all those free & paid apps, right?

 

Thanks.

Yes. It might not prompt you download them, but they will be available to download in your AppWorld > MyWorld.

Re: app reload after wiping playbook?

So I just tried it. After waiting a while for the .6067 to be installed what I observed were:

 

- the old apps showed up in the "uninstalled" portion of "my world"

- but oddly the two notable free playbook games tetris and need for speed were not there. I was under the impression these two were pre-installed on playbook so was surprised they did not show up in "uninstalled"

 

As to whether there were other apps that did not show up in "uninstalled", I cannot tell.

I "think" if you connect your BlackBerry to the PC via USB > run Desktop Manager, you should be able to get Tetris and NFS back installed.
