Were you jailbroken? If you were, there is the ability to hide an app icon on the homescreen. If you hide the icon and then restored the iPhone from a backup where it is hidden, then it will be hidden on your new phone.

If you are not jailbroken, maybe it's on a page all by itself? I know sometimes people accidentally move icons to another page and then think the icon is gone.

I'd call an Apple Store genius or use the online Apple support. It doesn't make sense if you have the latest Itunes and a new 3G Iphone with two different models doing the same thing AFTER you sync them with Itunes, correct? Do you use a pc or a MAC?

Very frustrating I'm sure. Good luck!

Can anyone else help out here?
I would hope there would be a selection to make when starting up a newly downloaded Itunes to chose to sync everything FROM your Iphone to the computer so you don't lose data. Also, any purchases made through Itunes will be under your Itunes account so you should be able to reload them. Did you ever call an Apple genius to see if they can shed some light? Or if all else fails are you still within your 30 days to exchange the iphone? If it happens again to a 3rd phone I'd definitely think it is your computer where the problem originates.

found this tip from another website & it worked!

Have you been playing around with Settings/General/Restrictions? If Restrictions are enabled the Apps or functions listed need to be turned "On" to show up in the touch's displays. If they are "Off" they will be removed from the menus.

You could backup your Iphone, connect it to your computer and right click the Iphone in Itunes and click backup. Then after it is backed up sync with a friend's computer which would wipe everything off the phone. See if the appstore comes back and then sync with your computer which should put everything back onto your phone and see if the App store disappears. Then you know there is a problem with the setup on your computer.

try settings>general>restrictions and see if it is active. If yes, check if Installing apps or delete apps is active. If yes, inactive them and your app store will reappear.
