    If he/she were previously jailbroken you'd have to do a set up as new to get all your icons back.

    Yeah, I was about to amend my reply. I was thinking you could go to settings>general>restrictions>enable restrictions> and then click on weather, but weather is not there. You might just have to restore your phone from a backup.

    I'd love to know how you deleted it in the first place. :) Anyway, I don't understand how you're not getting it back when you restore as new.

    How did you do that? In any case, restore it with stock Apple software and take it to an Apple store. If they can't put in the Weather icon back, then hurray new iPhone!

    Maybe...

    I accidentally did that once to some of my games ..

    I Jailbroke my phone and installed CATEGORIES or something like that for my phone

    When I restored it my apps were gone I couldnt get them back no matter how how many times I restored it..

    then I discovered my apps were there... just "hidden" or "invisible"
    so I had to re jailbreak my phone and install some app that makes all hidden apps visible again..
    it found all my games again!!

    thats all I could come up with for your problem..

    I had this happen with Compass once. Rejailbreak it and restore the icon however you hid it (in my case it was SBSettings).

    The solution is quite simple.

    1. Restore your phone in iTunes using the official firmware.
    2. Set up as a new phone (do not restore from backup).

    If you do this, it is not possible for any change you made before the restore to persist.

    I have the feeling that you care more about your jailbreak than you do about the Weather app henceforth, you are restoring from a jailbroken file instead of an official file. Just do everything through iTunes and don't jailbreak it in the process.

    Have you tried the above method, but just enable it, then close out, then go back in and disable it. Don't worry about selecting the weather icon. If anything will bring it back, this should.
