    Hey,

    Does anyone know how to get safari and the app store back on your iPad after they have been deleted?

    How Did You Delete These Two Apps?

    Safari and the AppStore Apps are two of twelve apps that cannot be deleted. They can be moved, however. So when you were navigating around your home screen you have moved them to another page? Apps can be moved when you press down on the app and it starts to wiggle. All apps will start shaking. If you installed apps these will have an 'x' on them, press on the 'x' and you will eliminate it. However, for the apps that are preinstalled you won't have this 'x'.

    They may be on the next page. Swipe across your home screen, right to left, and you'll move to the next page. Hope you find your 'missing' apps.

    Yes, what jOyful said

    I haven't installed the pre-release os like jOyful, so my apps aren't organized into folders. I can't wait to get it cause I hate cluttered home pages. Here is a picture of my arrangement. For the benefit of the original poster, you will see the difference between preinstalled, un deletable apps and the apps I installed.

    By the way, ten of the twelve apps are missing from this view. Can you tell which two are missing? ;)

    Jealousy alert!

    I too move the pre-installed apps - I've got the ones I don't want on the last page. That way I don't have to look at them...

    I'm just w.a.i.t.i.n.g for 4.2 so that I too can hide stuff in folders. So, I'm jealous of you developers and other brave souls who've put the Beta on your iPads. Folders! I want folders!

    /alert. :D

    Soon, Marilyn!! I had them, like Joy and Matt, but I had to lose the privilege as I could not access the internet!

    For three days, woman.

    It was brutal.:(

    Hey Woman!

    Well ~ I have two computers at home. My mini and my HP desktop, I just meant out in the field I could not access on line. And for my job I need too on a dime.

    After three days, I just went back to the old OS. I just don't have the time and patience for problems with it.

    Soon the new OS will be out!

    Funny you two mention this. We had a two hour power outage this weekend and I'm still pondering what I missed the most, not having power or not having my router?

    Thankfully there was 3G...:p
