    Hi Folks,
    When an application is uninstalled from the phone, would it clean up any data it stored/used? Does the OS do that? Or itís the developerís job? Also would a hard reset remove all of the saved data by apps? I noticed once after a hard reset that some data stays, for example I installed ESPN Scored Center after the reset and I didnít have to enter my login info again like when I used the app for the first time.

    Thanks!

    Uninstalling an app cleans up all of its data, the OS handles that. A hard reset will remove all app data from the phone.

    I'm guessing that ESPN Scorecenter stores your device ID server-side and ties that to your login. Then when you reinstall the app it sees that device ID and remembers you.
