    What deice are you using? What do you mean you mean by how to recover it? There is no way to delete the icon, it should be a blue icon won the main home screen that says app store.

    I have the iPhone 4S, not jailbroken. I didn't think there was ANY way to do delete it, but it no longer is on my phone. Also, when a hook my phone up to my computer, I am unable to re-arrange my icons. Just sort of grayed out. I might add my 3 year old granddaughter had my phone, but I don't think she could have done this.

    I realize that in the realm of problems, these are very small, but they are annoying and confusing!

    sounds like somehow-someway your granddaughter was able to turn your restrictions to OFF for your app store app

    check here: Settings > General > Restrictions > (here's where it gets confusing because you have to enter a password) > Installing Apps > ON

    If Blink's answer does not work you can of course go into Settings / General / Reset / Rest Home Screen Layout, but you will lose ALL your folders (not apps).

    Thanks, guys! Apparently the 3 year old did do the deed. Now everything is password locked. I anticipate her figuring that out fairly soon. She's awfully good at working no only my phone, but her parents' Android phones.
