On My Sony Xperia J .. nothing worked like clearing the cache, enabling background data nd and sync, Force Stop etc.. Finally I have uninstalled all the updates to the play store app and then the google pay store is reset with factory version... :)

Thanks as well. It took me two hours to find this forum and it finally resolved the problem!

Wonder if Google Playstore people are aware of this problem and perhaps they should write instructions ( or perhaps they should smoke little less and pay attention to writing more troubleshooting advice).

Hi,
I just found a quick suggestion about your question asked in this forum. Did you unchecked the box that says restrict background data?
You can find that option from Setting > Data usage > Play store > Scroll down

Hope this will fix your issue of background data disabled error

I went into settings and did a FORCE STOP for the Play Store and it reset... seems to work just fine now.
