    Hi all. So I deleted Game Center on my iphone 4 from Verizon. Long story but I never thought I would use it.

    Looked around to put it back on but I kept getting searches coming up with Jailbreak. Does anyone know how to slide it back on my iPhone? Thanks

    If you're not jailbroken, it's impossible to "delete" GameCenter.

    You must have jailbroken your phone somehow.

    The only way to restore it is to to a full restore from itunes.

    Remember to first backup your phone before restoring.

    It's not going to be listed on the Apps section of iTunes. Check any folders that you may have created.

    Well did a backup and its back. Thanks for the responses everyone. I am perplexed as to how it was jail-broken though? I have one used itunes and the app store with it since I purchased it.

    Thanks

    because it wasn't jailbroken.. you just couldn't see the icon :D (or it disappeared, vanished, etcetc.)

    Agree with the others. For you to actually delete it you must jailbreak, but if you have only used iTunes then the icon must have been inside a folder.

    Actually iOS 10 allows you to delete pretty much all the apps from your phone. I have accidentally deleted Game Centre too and can't find a way to get it back. It's very frustrating!

    This thread is from 2011, so...

    You did not. Apple has removed Game Center app from iOS 10 altogether.
