I need to install Google Play on my old Moto E4 Plus after Dish’s RW deleted it along with a bunch of other apps.
Background: I bought the Moto from RW some years ago. I had switched away from RW at the start of this year and use a new phone with the new carrier. I still used my Moto as a tiny tablet for web browsing and ebooks. I intended to remove the RW SIM card but a combination of preoccupations and laziness forestalled that. Some months ago I had to go for surgery. I turned off most of my devices, including the Moto, to prevent battery loss while I was gone. When I returned I turned my Moto on. It took longer than usual to boot. I found a lot of apps missing, including apps that need root to uninstall such as the Republic app, the Google keyboard app, and Google Play. Interestingly Google Play Services is still installed.
I have never rooted the Moto so I am pretty sure Dish did this. I had previously read of other people experiencing this but I cannot find those discussions and how they solved this issue.
I would appreciate any help. Thank you for reading.
