I disabled the Facebook app because I don't like it and wanted to try some third party apps (Fast for Fb, Friendcaster) . But now, because I need more reliable notifications, I'd like to enable it again. However when I go hit "enable" in Google Play store, I get "Unfortunately, Google Play has stopped working." This happens every single time... Sent from my DROID RAZR MAXX using Android Central Forums
Preinstalled apps missing from app drawer (again)
Monday 06th of August 2012
I know this issue has been raised before, but I'm going to raise it again, since it seems to be more widespread than earlier posts have indicated. I just bought up phone yesterday, and I'm pretty happy with it, except for one thing: several of the preinstalled apps that came with the phone are not visible in the app drawer. I can see them in Manage Apps, but they don't have icons in the regular App drawer. I'm not talking about widgets or system processes, I mean full blown apps that should be there but aren't. I've seen a couple of postings here and elsewhere mentioning the Voice Recorder, Voice Search, and Car apps, and sure enough, I have those same problems. But also missing are things like Flickr, Polaris Office, etc. I've tried disabling and re-enabling the invisible ones in Manage Apps, and I even did a factory reset (although I've only had the phone for 24 hours!), but they stubbornly refuse to show up in the app drawer. It's not just a glitch with one phone, because I bought two of them, one for me and one for my wife. Both have the same problem with exactly the same apps.I'
Apps re-enabling themselves
Friday 20th of July 2012
Just as the title describes, I am having a problem with disabled apps enabling themselves without my approval or input. Specifically, Google earth, play movies, and play books have all been disabled multiple times and every single one keeps enabling itself. I don't understand how its even possible for them to do it, but they are. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
Market Apps Not Displaying after Downloading
Wednesday 18th of January 2012
When I got my GNex I didn't have this problem - at least I didn't notice it. I had the box checked to auto-create a widget when I downloaded something from the market and I got annoyed with it taking up home screen space for every single thing so I unchecked that. Sometime after that, I started noticing that things I downloaded didn't show up in my home menu unless I restarted the phone. I just tried clearing the data/cache on the Market and downloaded something and still it doesn't create an icon for it. I imagine after I restart it'll be fine. I also tried re-enabling the auto-widget thing.Any ideas what is wrong and how I might fix it? It's marginally annoying having to restart just to get to my new apps.ETA - I also noticed that the icons from things I uninstall don't go away either until I restart.
Problem With Google Play Store Application
Monday 30th of April 2012
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S IIYesterday, I updated my Android version to version 4, and I hate it. Though there is nothing I can do, this is not the reason I am here. The reason I am here is because, due to the upgrade, every 5 minutes, I get a message saying the voice talk is disable in my Google account. Because this Google account is my school email, I had no way of re-enabling the Google Talk. After about 2 hours, that message was driving me nuts, so I went into the application settings, and disabled all the Google Apps, to see if it would make the message go away. I purposely didn't disable Google Play, but yet something has gone wrong with it. I cannot open it, at all it would just wouldn't open, So I uninstalled it, and re-installed the Market app I downloaded ff a website. But this has the same problem, I cannot open it, in case you do not understand what it is like, I made a video showing you. ht tp://youtu.be/ 7ru_3KMmp0Q (Without Spaces!)As far as I can see, all them Google Apps has re-enabled themselves But yet I have this problem.Any help towards the fix will be appreciated,

If you’re a rooted user, you’re probably familiar with the ADB command, and that it requires you to connect your phone to your PC with a cable. Enter adbWireles, which allows you to - wait for it - use ADB over WiFi. The specifics of how it works are pretty technical, but here’s the laymans version provided by the dev (and translated from Spanish by the Goog):adbWireless is a simple application to enable the wireless interface debug Android. After enabling the connection works as if we had the phone connected via USB. If you do not know which is the ADB (Android Debug Bridge) this program probably is not for you Anyway, here is information on what it does and how it works.

Mobile data seems to be connected but doesn't work
Saturday 11th of January 2014
Hello, I am encounting a mysterious problem: PROBLEM DESCRIPTION Sometimes, the mobile data connection seems to be connected (the arrows are coloured) but the connection doesn't work.I can't find a rule about a specific factor that causes this malfunction. SOLUTION ATTEMPTS I tried to solve the problem by: disabling and re-enabling data connectionenabling and re-disabling flight modeusing some applications from google play which promises to fix data connection issuescache cleaningram cleaning However, I discovered another solution that permanently solves the problem for specific apps: When the problem occurs, I open an application that needs internet connection.I test data internet connection through this application to be ensured that it doesn't work.I disable data connection, enable wifi and test if the application now has internet connection through wifi.I disable wifi connection, re-enable data connection and test again if the application now has internet connection through data connection.Data connection now works normally only for the specific application but not for other app

Re-enabling background data for Play Store
Sunday 16th of February 2014
I have restricted background data for the Google Play Store app from the Data Usage settings screen. However, apps only appear in the list on this screen if they have used data recently. I rarely use the Play Store, and my phone only keeps records of the last two months' usage. If in a few months I want to use the Play Store, how will I re-enable it? For any other app, it would simply be a matter of opening it and using some foreground data. It would then appear in the list and I could deselect the "Restrict background data" option. However, Google Play stubbornly refuses to start at all if background data is off, even if I'm connected to wifi. At the moment, this is a hypothetical question. But is there another way to access the "Restrict background data" setting for an app other than through the Data Usage screen?

Won't update - - says my international S3 has been modified
Monday 24th of February 2014
What does that mean? The S3 (running 4.3) is not rooted, not flashed, not damaged. So, what does MODIFIED mean here? I may have disabled a file i shouldn't have. (I have disabled a bunch of apps in the Manage Apps setting.) I've been re - enabling apps one by one, but it's tedious. Any ideas about what app could have caused the message? Or about what else might be the problem? Thanks. GT-I9500 running 4.3
