Camera App Disappeared?!

I looked through all my folders and I didn't delete it. How do I get it back?

Re: Camera App Disappeared?!

** bump ** Mine disappeared tonight!! Ive barely owned the phone 24 hours - and am 100% sure I did not delete it!

 

I can get to the camera app by searching for it - but there is no camera icon.

 

Just before this happened, the camera had "froze" over the screen - I could move around the screen and see other apps under it, but the camera image portion would not go away.  I turned the phone on and off and that's when the icon disappeared.

I found how to fix my situation. Perhaps this will help you.

 

  1. Power down the phone.
  2. Remove the battery.
  3. Wait a few seconds.
  4. Put the battery back in.
  5. Power the phone back on (in some cases, it may restart itself at this point).

 

That seems to reset something in the OS if it gets corrupted, but you don't lose your contacts, installed apps, things like that. I hope it works for you, too!

 

This also got rid of my mysterious undeletable and unusable folder at the same time.
