Related: What does it mean when the connectivity icons in the status bar go white/gray? / With Android 4.4 (KitKat), my notification icons are always gray. Am I in trouble? Maybe that helps you in analysis. Maybe your ZyXEL itself has a poor internet connection?

comment How to resume app restore after stopping it on first opening Google Play?
A side note to consider: On pre-ICS devices (Android 2.x), removing the Google account also removes data connected to Google Apps (such as accounts, calendar-data, etc.) from the device. While this shouldn't be a big deal for data already synced, I'm not sure concerning settings (unsynced data of course would be lost). No problem, though, starting with Android 4.0 – and yes, dropping and re-adding the account should trigger restore when you check the backup option on add.

Just added them. Still, the answer lacks one requirement: One of the main requirements would be that they could use the standard music player in their phone. This answer requires them to install a different app for that.

@user3275057 That's like saying "I regularly ventilate my rooms and use power-safe options on my home devices, but still the floor gets dirty and stuff is standing in the way". While both options are helpful, they miss some essential parts – as explained above: Sometimes you've got to mop the floor and tidy the room :)
