In attempt to downgrade my phone to be a bit more dumb during vacation, I disabled synchronisation on my Google account inside the email settings.
I was a bit surprised when the email tile disappeared off the start screen but figured I'd work out what to do later.
Later is now, and I discover that in my email settings, the Google account is there, but grayed out. It is impossible to select or delete, and I can't re-add because it says "already exists".
I've searched around a bit and found others with the same or similar problems, and I've tried the soft-resets-in-airplane-mode with no success.
So, before doing the full hard reset, I wondered if anyone might have a less drastic solution?
Failing that, what are the chances that restoring apps and settings after the hard reset will also restore this faulty configuration?
