I recently set up the exchange email push settings on my iPhone 3GS and now safari and my camera app are missing. Has anyone else had this happen?

iOS 4

    The same has happened to me, and surely someone somewhere knows how to retrieve them. I don't know why they are lost, but they are both gone.

    are they gone or moved to another window? As these are Apple apps, they can't usually be trashed by the user. How were you set up to use exchange. If you ran a config file, your company has hidden these programs and you will need to talk to you company IT.

    You need to contact the people who manage your Exchange account. They have disabled Safari and the Camera in the configuration of the account. Unless you control the Exchange server you can't bring them back.

    I had to do a restore to get them back. I can't use my exchange email account on the IPhone anymore though. Funny thing is that I just updated to to 4.2 on the IPAD and the same thing happened with safari on my Ipad. I still have my exchange account right now so I may have to get used to not having Safari. My company doesn't really support the device since it isn't government issue and I like having my email pushed to the Ipad. I'm sure that if I restore I'll lose the account.

    What you're seeing is the result of policies set by your company's IT department. They have either intentionally or inadvertently decided to block use of cameras and web browsers on smartphones connected to Exchange. The only options are: a) get them to change the policy, or b) don't use Exchange e-mail on your iPhone. There is no other way around it.
  • NaserQ Level 1 Level 1
    Tim the mail domain is hosted in google. I am the owner of the company which so there are nooo policies that have been made to cancel the cameras.

    it just simply happened !!!

    its not mentioned why in any support forums .. ill try to contact apple instead.
  • Tim Harbison1 Level 1 Level 1
    Sorry it took so long to get back to you. Apple isn't going to be able to help. If the mail is hosted in Google, then the problem is there. You may not have actively chosen the policy that blocks these apps, but it's been enable on the servers somehow.

    You'll need to contact Google Support for assistance if you can't find the options in the management interface they provide.

    I have this issue as well. I did use Google Sync, via Microsoft Exchange. This issue seemed to occur after restart. Both apps seemed to be truly gone - not simply their icons. Very frustrating, I've only had my phone 3 days!

    Have you checked under Settings>General>Restrictions first? Just in case are turned OFF?

    I solved the problem from the Google Apps control panel. ( I am the IT admin of the domain)

    Settings;mobile devices;Enable Camera;  


    This is Crazy!!!
