    I disabled to following apps and now the wifi/signal bars are gray, indicating the device is not connected to Google Services:

    Amazon app suite
    Amazon Kindle
    Amazon music
    Amazon app store
    Audible
    Cloud
    Cloud print
    Droid Zap
    Family base companion
    Google Hindi Input
    Google Korean keyboard
    Google Pinyin Input
    Google play music
    HP Print Service plugin
    NFL Mobile
    Quickoffice
    Slacker Radio
    Softcard
    VZ Navigator


    I re-enabled the apps but the phone is still unable to connect to Google Services. The phone seems to be working fine, I haven't encountered any issues.

    My question is what are the downsides to not connecting to Google Services?

    Thanks

    I'm having the exact same problem. I didn't disable near as many apps as you. I disabled:

    Cloud
    Message+
    VZ Navigator
    VZ Protect

    That's it. All of a sudden Google services stopped working over wifi. And same thing, after re-enabling the apps it still doesn't work. I'm going to do a factory reset tonight.
