    When I got this iPad 3rd Gen, it had Safari on it, which I like to use for some things. I use Atomic most of the time and Safari has disappeared completely. Any ideas on how I can find and reenable it?

    Safari is a built in app and can't be deleted, only hidden.
    Maybe you enabled restrictions. Look at Settings - General - Restrictions. If Safari is disabled, you'll have to enable it.

    It could be hidden on a homescreen you barely use, or in a folder.
    You could also search for it (Spotlight Search).

    I don't have but one screen and I know it's not on it.

    I guess I had somehow turned it off in the Restrictions panel. Thanks.

    Hi BamaFan - now as already stated, if your iPad is working indicating that iOS is intact, you have to have Safari somewhere; as to one home screen, do you just have 'one dot' @ the bottom of that screen above the dock? If so, then you'll need to check every folder on that single screen - again, use 'Spotlight' search - brings up Safari immediately for me. Good luck - Dave
