Default Help! Google Play Store app is missing after restore to factory settings

My Samsung Galaxy Mini SS570 was bought in KSA. I tried to restore the phone's factory settings the other day. However, the Google Play Store App was gone and was replaced by SlideME and Indiroid. Indiroid is a Turkish App Store and SlideME is not so good compared to Play Store.

I tried to download .apk files of Play Store online but it always has to force close.

What can I do?

Should I bring my phone to a service center, and can they remove all the other unwanted system apps?

Thanks.

Default Update Android

I am still looking for a solution and am pretty sure I have found it! I believe that the phone that you have is originally a turkish model and as such will revert to its Turkish settings when you reset it, thus replacing Play store with Indiroid and Android 2.2 (Froyo)! I believe to counter this you will have to upgrade your phone with an official Samsung Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) firmware.

Google "upgrade samsung mini to official gingerbread" for directions

this will give you a none turkish/google play compatible Android version!

Tell me if this works!
