    Did it disappear from one of the home screens or from the apps list all together?

    Everything I find is for earlier version phones that didnt come with Android Market to begin with.

    did you try looking under menu>settings>applications>manage applications? search there and see if you can find it. i'm not sure why it would not show up in your apps menu. i guess i would try a battery pull. i did a quick google search and didn't find any more useful info. i don't think you can even download the market app apk anywhere. sorry.

    edit: i guess i would also try hitting the plus button and trying to add an application, and seeing if it shows up there. i would just try any avenue on the phone to see if it's just not visible in one location for some reason. i'm puzzled by it disappearing from your phone, since i'm pretty sure you can't even uninstall it.

    I just bought a new HTC Hero that has updated OTA to 2.1 and market was not visible in 1.5 nor is it visible in 2.1. Market updater is running in applications but I can find no way to get to the market apps. My phone was bought in Turkey but it is unlocked and I have a data account and can tether. Any ideas on how to get market to work - just want to get some games to play when I'm bored.

    still cant find it after following all the suggestions....
    Do you think my next step would be contacting HTC or my carrier Verizon ?

    I don't think that contacting HTC will help. Here is their answer to me:

    I am hoping when the Froyo update comes down the line I will get the Market app back.
