Got the problem fixed good enough, I still can't get Google's play to work properly but I have found another way of downloading my apps and doing everything that I use to be able to do on Google's play.
I had absolutely no access to google play because the app would crash after launching it so I tried reinstalling the APK files, installed many different versions of Google's play and android market, restarting the phone, clearing the cache, factory reinstall, etc, .... nothing worked and I became extremely annoyed. So annoyed that I bought another Rugby pro phone and gave up on fixing my slightly older Samsung Rugby Pro.
So I tried again today and after about 8 hours of screwing around trying almost all suggestions to fix the problem I finally stumbled upon a fix.
I installed an app called Aptoide which is an application just like Google's play, it allows you to download apps just like the Google's play store including apps which you have paid for and will allow you to install them just like Google's play.
So the Play app has been replaced by the Aptoide app on the phone and now since the phone is fixed the wife gets the newer unlocked /rooted Rugby Pro.
And I also just did a complete backup to avoid any more problems.
Hopefully some day Google fixed this major problem with Google Play, many others seem to also have experienced this same problem.
