    Bought a 3GS, did a restore, and now the phone is wacked.

    I dont even have the settings icon.

    Should I restore again or just sync or what?

    Also, none of my music or apps came back.

    What should I do??

    Restore... and if you can do not "restore from back up" just set up as new phone

    I'd do a clean restore to be sure.

    Why did you restore the phone if it was completely new though?

    I thought I was supposed to do a restore to get my app data back?

    Like my 15 accounts in Checkbook, etc.

    Yup.

    Its gone.

    Now, I just did a 2nd restore.

    Got my checkbook app back, but still no settings icon.

    What should I do at this point? :(

    (As a side note, I can find it in spotlight search, so I know it is installed. Just no icon.)

    I only had 37 apps installed.

    This is beyond weird.

    Okay, that was weird.

    It is back after doing a sync.

    Strange, but thanks for all the help!
