    Have you tried clearing data for google play application and then logging back in

    Like many people on this thread I too had the same error. I just fixed my error today and I will list what i did step by step in hopes that it will help someone.

    1: download this update com.android.vending-4.1.6.apk | by Android Police for Generic Device
    2: go to your Application Manager, Clear Cache for Google Play, then Clear Data, then Uninstall Updates for Google Play
    3: clear cache for Google Play Services, then Clear Data
    4: install downloaded Google Play apk.
    5: open and sign in but dont attempt to download anything yet.
    6: turn phone completely off. Reboot then see if you can connect.

    I'm not saying this will work for everyone. I simply documented the steps i took to get mine to work. I hope this helps.

    Try removing your Gmail account and then re-adding it.

    Note: my error message was "Error retrieving information from server. [RPC:S-3]" and this was the first link google gave me was this thread
