    Phone Icon disappeared, not in APPS, or Settings, or elsewhere

    Phone Icon disappeared two days ago. It is not in APPS, or Settings, or elsewhere on the phone.

    Ideas?

    Welcome to the Forum. Have you rebooted your phone? You may want to go to settings> all apps make sure it's there. If so uninstall and reinstall the app.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Have you tried to long press on a blank spot on your home page? A menu will pop up and the first option on that menu will say "add to homescreen". Press that and another menu will pop up. Click on apps, and scroll through until you find the phone icon. Click on it and it will add it to your homescreen. Then long press on that icon to drag it to wherever you want it.

    phoned samsung. the only way to fix (cause it was caused by the software upgrade), was to do a factory reset, and lose everything, which i did.

    With the Samsung tech, i tried to show patience also. i've owned android phones for a long time. this is a new 1 week S3. a few days ago, there was a software upgrade from samsung. That is when the problem started. after, the reset. the dialer was back.
