Help Gmail query on new device


May 10, 2011
I've recently switched from iOS to Android and I'm slowly getting used to it. I set up my gmail account to push to the phone with notifications, but recently in the notifications bar of my SGS2 it shows up with the email symbol and then (null) next to it.
When I click on the notification to be taken to the email, it takes me into a null inbox - which basically looks like a messed up version of my normal inbox. Don't know why this has started happening.
I tried deleting the account, but because I used it to set up the device, it says I'd need to do a factory reset to change it.

1) Anyone had this problem and can tell me how to fix it, or
2) If I do a factory reset and start from scratch will I be able to get my apps and stuff back onto the phone?
