Thank you
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.
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
Thanks so much for you suggestion.
Sir.. Nothing happen.. What can I do?
