    dude, the question is after re-downloading any app, how do you get the saved data back into the app?

    Actually may i add the best way is to connect the phone to the pc and login to app market on the pc. On the pc, it will list at least two to three pages of download n paid apps whereas, login in on phone will not display much. This is good for those who have lots of paid or free apps. As a matter of practice, always back up your apps either on sd card or pc. It will come in handy when u want to reinstall the games or apps. You simply copy over the saved games and other settings. I always do this when reinstalling Gameloft after a upgrade.
