    I recently made some groups to arrange my icons in order. I noticed that my gallery icon is missing. I don't know if making groups had something to do with it. Its just gone! I have to go to my camera and click on the last photo I took and hit menu to choose gallery home. It's all there I just lost that icon. Can anyone help me with this? Im kinda new to Android. Thanks!

    Do you mean on your home screens or in your app drawer?

    OK, I'll hunt around, but I doubt you deleted it outright. You sure its not hiding in one of your folders.

    Oh, I merged your two threads so you wouldn't have to answer questions in both.

    Thanks for the merger of the 2 threads. Also I looked everywhere. I checked out all the apps I have and I can't find it anywhere. I would appreciate if you can find me some help. Thanks for your time!

    Nope! It's just gone. Very weird but I downloaded something called "Smart Gallery" in the market for free and it works just like the gallery without now having to go through my camera since I gave up on getting the icon for gallery back.

    This happened to me after the latest update. I even went into a Verizon store to try to solve the problem, and they were clueless. I finally found the Gallery by going to Storage, Apps, and Gallery. When I clicked it, lo and behold, it was DISABLED! I never disabled it, so I assume this happened with the update. After I clicked ENABLE, I had my gallery back in the apps list and was able to move it back to my home screen.
