    Trying to fix GMail I removed the Google Apps data. Now I cannot use GMail, Google contacts or the market.

    I explain:
    This is an HTC Tattoo. It was locked for Orange Spain, but the previous owner unlocked it.

    I registered with my GMail account and used it for some months. Orange removes GMail and Google Talk from its locked phones, but I managed to download and install the relevant APKs.
    I have been using GMail but recently I was getting force-closes when synchronizing. I read that deleting the local GMail data would help.
    I cleared the Google Apps data (probably I should not have). I uninstalled GMail and GMail storage and reinstalled. Then, when starting GMail, it asks for my id and password. I enter them bu tafter a while I get the typical
    It is not a connection problem.
    I have retried several times including rebooting but no way.

    I read in the Internet that I can either:

    • factory reset
    • delete a certain .db file that requires root access.
    I do not want a factory reset because I would lose my SMS and call logs if I'm not wrong. (My contacts are in Google so I guess I will not lose them)
    I do not feel ready to root my Tattoo now.

    Is there any other solution?
    If I do a factory reset, do I have to unlock the SIM lock again. I don't have the unlock code.

    Thanks in advance.
