    I have got the same problem several months ago. Today I got an answer from another blog-

    Maybe you have disabled the camera access in the settings you just need to enable the camera restriction in iphone. To do that go to Settings->General->Restrictions to make sure camera access is enabled.

    I got mine fixed.

    Are you using Exchange Server for an email account? If so try turning off SSL and see if the camera icon comes back.

    Thanks Terry! This was the case in my phone. Once I added the email account that uses exchange server with SSL the camera icon disappeared and I got it back when I turned off the SSL.

    To restore your home screen icons to their default placement, simply go to Settings, General, Reset. Once you get to Reset you will see “Reset Home Screen Layout” just click and they will magically re-arrange back. It won’t delete your apps that you have downloaded just rearranges your original plus apps are set in alphabetical order…. It worked for me!

    Restore home screen layout will fix it for you, then you can put your icons back in folders once it returns.
