I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 with Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread. Recently my data was being used up after only a few days into the month. I couldn't find the app responsible so I did a factory reset which solved the problem However, after the reset I noticed that Google Play was missing from the phone so I cannot restore any apps. When I tried to download Google Play from Google I had a message saying that my operating system was too old (or words to that effect). I then downloaded a file called PlayStore_v8.5.37.W-all.apk to my phone SD card (from a 3rd party website via my laptop) but I can't get the phone to load it.
How can I restore Google Play back on my phone?
@AnonymousIf you look at this old article and scroll down to Hovsep's answer, there is a fix in that. Whether it works now remains to be seen...https://www.makeuseof.com/answers/cant-run-google-play-store-galaxy-s2/

To be honest I'm surprised the phone is still working with the age of it. Nice one Samsung 😩
Is there not an older pk available?
