PR of 1 on site 1 year old

I am an web novice but have a website that has been active for 1 year. some pages have a PR of 1 while other pages have a grey PR box. I read that a grey PR means that Google hasnt indexed the page. After such a long period that seems strange. Is something wrong with the site or is this normal?

Also, what is a realistic time frame for all pages of a site to be indexed?

Also, my web guy states that you do not get a PR of 2 until all pages are indexed and that a PR of 2 will add significant credibility to your site and increase your rankings. Is this true?

Finally, I am working on building strong backlinks now, will this help speed the process of having all pages indexed and moving to a PR of 2?

Any thoughts or recommendations would be greatly appreciated and Thank you in advance for your help.

I've never heard that before.

Yep, that's exactly what you need. PageRank is built on links. The more (quality) links, the better your PageRank.

Thanks jimbeetle. I appreciate it

Also it true that a site has to be indexed fully to have PR of 2 and does this make a significant difference?

Google has indicated in the past, that pagerank is solely a function of incoming links

I know this is basic but are links the key to Google indexing the pages?

Wow! I'm really sorry. The first question I meant to answer was:

my web guy states that you do not get a PR of 2 until all pages are indexed

Nope, I've never heard that before.

Yep, pages must have incoming links to be indexed. The more (quality) incoming links, the higher the PR; the higher the PR, the pages will be spidered more often and stick in the index.
