Galaxy play store app disappeared - for good
Had google play apps disabled for long time on my Galaxy wifi-only Tab 10.1. Upon every reconnection, google bitched about being disabled/wanting updates. I ignored. Recently, skype wouldn't start after an "update available notice", kept going into restart and reinstalling update. So I disinstalled skype, and wanted to reinstall, connected to google account, enabled google sync, and cannot find the google play app any more. Don't know what i did -- play books, play games, etc., are all there. On the www play store, it lists skype and other apps i earlier tried installing as "installed", and when I re-install, it says "congratulations [app] will soon be installed on your device". Nothing actually installs. Rebooting to no avail, Not using Samsung account to date -- would that help? what options do I have but back to factory setting after tedious backup.
