first things first: model# sch-r720 (samsung admire) firmware ver# 2.3.4 baseband ver# s:r720.06 x.eh02 kernel ver# 18.104.22.168 build # gingerbread. eh02 carrier - metropcs country -US I recently set up my phone to tether using pdanet (also changed ro.tether.denied=true (true to false)), and it works well but since then the phone won't connect to google. In accts and sync background data and auto-sync are enabled and on the specific acct. all syncs are enabled. I can access play but i'm not getting my email and the signal type (3g with arrows) and signal strength bars are white instead of green. Any ideas how to fix this? Thanks!
