Question: Phone Icon disappeared from iPhone

The phone icon suddenly disappeared from the screen on my iPhone 4. How do I get it back?


I can make calls if I go to my contacts but I can't figure out how to get access to the keypad. I can't imagine how it disappeared. I thought the phone was a default icon that stayed there. Thanks for any suggestions. Help!

Answer:

OK. After I panicked I did some research and found that I needed to reset the home screen layout.


settings > general > reset > reset home screen


Worked like a charm. I should have searched further in Apple communities before I posted.
