    Camera App (icon) is missing
    Where did it go? Didn't think you could erase the default apps from the phone but its not there. I've moved around some icons recently but it shouldn't have disappeared completely. Any ideas/thoughts? TIA

    You can always restore the phone and see if that brings it back.

    I tried to simulate the ho the camera app icon disappears
    - I tried to configure the Microsoft Exchange account, on successful configuration the camera app icon disappears. After deleting the account again it appeared on my iphone home screen.

    I dont know why there is conflict with a Microsoft Exchange account and a camera app. and settings0>restrictions do not work in this case.

    If you mean that the square is there but its just a white background don't worry. I had this problem several times and Apple have only just admitted it is happening. Upgrade your iPhone software to 3.1.2 - As this was designed to fix these sort of issues. As for sorting it out try going to SETTINGS > GENERAL > RESET > RESET HOME SCREEN

    see if that works.

    Make sure you upgrade the iPhone software though

    Come on folks, this thread is a year old and was solved a year ago.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
