    I had a Jailbroken iPhone 3G that I was using for the past couple of weeks or so awaiting the arrival of the new software. I had most of my stock iPhone apps (calendar, clock, camera, photos etc.) in a folder through categories, and when I upgraded to the 3.0 software all of the apps left in the category are now erased from my phone.

    Does anyone have any idea if there is a way to fix this any possible help is welcome.

    I can't tell you how to fix, I'm sure one of the more technically advanced users can. But I can tell you your problem: Jailbroken.

    It never ceases to amaze me that people who do things contrary to the suggested use of the phone then have problems with said unsuggestedd use.

    Did you do an upgrade or a restore?

    If you did an upgrade, try a restore. It's a better way to remove stuff that you did while jailbroken. I had hidden apps and different things on mine. Restoring brought everything back for me.

    This happened to me too, as I upgrade from 2.2.1 jailbroken. I just went to Settings>General>Restore, and did Restore Settings. It gave me back all of my hidden icons.*

    If all else fails, restore it as a new phone and not from a backup. You'll have to re-sync everything and redo all your settings from scratch, but it will work for sure.

    Simply reset the home icons from the settings application.

    Its not the home icons that are missing its the whole default app that is missing sorry for the misunderstanding. Just did a restore from a earlier backup today and no differance... will just have to restore as a whole new phone I guess.

    Thanks for the help
