    Hi guys,

    Just a quick one, the Safari app seems to have disappeared from my iPhone 4.

    Before anyone asks the obvious, no I haven't moved it to another folder etc.

    I also tried to reset home screen in the Settings - General folder.

    Can anyone possibly help? Driving me mad! :thumbsdow

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Should be able to see if it's still there by swiping right to get Spotlight search up & typing Safari.

    Won't show you it's location though.

    Try the soft rest (hold home and stanby button until phone restarts and you see the apple logo).

    If you are jailbroken, go to SBSettings > More > Hide Icons.

    Scroll through and switch Safari to OFF. Respring your iPhone then do the same as above but switch Safari back to ON. Respring again and it "should" reappear.

    Keep hold of one of the icons until they go wiggly as if you were to move them. Mine did that with messages and once I did the above it reappeared.
