I have an iPhone 4S & have had it since the 4S was first released. I haven't done anything w/photos or camera, etc. Today I wanted to take pictures w/the phone but I don't have a camera icon on the phone. I went into iTunes and looked at all of the apps I have for my iPhone - installed and not installed - and Camera isn't listed anywhere. Where is it, how do I find it, how do I get the app? Any ideas as to why I don't have Camera?

Go to Settings>General>Restrictions>Camera. Is the camera turned off? If it's turned off, the camera icon is not visible.

Could you possibly have it turned OFF in Restrictions (in your Settings app under General)? That's about the only way I know to "hide" the Camera icon (well, if you're not jail broken).

So, check there and make sure Camera is turned ON in Restrictions?

Thank you. I never thought to look at Restrictions as I didn't realize it had a camera setting and I don't remember ever changing anything there. That did the trick! Thanks!

Speaking as the faster typist :) I'm glad we could help solve your problem.
