    1. If it's a preinstalled app, they can't delete it... only it's icon. Go into the app drawer, long-press the app icon, and drag it to the desired location on your homescreen. Note that the preceding only applies for non-rooted devices. Since you didn't mention, I'm assuming it's not.
    2. If it's an app you downloaded, the app is associated with your account, not your phone (at least for Play store and Amazon). Just download and install it again.
