    If she bought it off ebay, it could have been jail broken and that icon removed.
    Or it could be on another page.

    Only things I can think of.

    Go into settings, General, Reset, and do a Reset All Settings.

    Reset Homescreen Layout also might work. Or you could just restore your phone in iTunes.

    Yes, thats why I responded and tried to help.
    He can still get into settings thru spotlight, he's just missing the icon.
    With the reset all settings many times missing icons will be restored thats why I suggested it.
    Why you ask?

    If those reset suggestiong dont work either the only left would be a restore.
