I am an iPhone 4 user, you can solve your problem as below:

go to Settings on the iPhone.
Go to General.
Go to Reset.
Then go to Reset Home Screen Layout and the app will reappear.
The software is still in the phone just the icon was deleted.
Yay! It worked! Thanks so much!
heyyyyy......thanks problem solve....thanks

Thank you so much I was going crazy trying to figure it out!
With this process the original factory settings are restored. Will I then need to individually restore icons - such as apps - that have been added after the factory settings?
Tnx a lot judith....solved
