    General question on OTA updates

    Yup, a n00b question but oh well.

    For those of us willing to be patient and wait for an OTA update, how will it work with installed apps? Will my apps re-install after the update? Do I need to back everything up first? I would think everything would be fine, but just want to double check.

    Everything will be ok. Once you get the update, you may have to reboot your phone one more time. Most apps should be fine but you may have to uninstall/reinstall one or two. Nothing big.

    If you have uninstall/reinstall one or two...how does that work with paid apps? Obviously we're not talking a ton of money here, and if we have to pay a second time, then so be it...but damn that would be pretty frustrating. Thanks for the help man!

    Once you paid for an app, it's yours. It is attached to your Google account. Even if you switch to another android phone and use the same google account, your paid app will still be there. So you can uninstall a paid app and reinstall in without having to pay for it again.
