I have an iPhone 3G, about a year old, recently upgraded to iPhone OS 3.0. It is not hacked, jailbroken or anything, but I had Telia (who sold it to me) unlock it, so now I use a different operator.
Anyway, I've started to see missing apps. I have WordBook, a dictionary app, installed on my iPhone. It appears in iTunes, and when I go check the list of apps to be synced from iTunes, it is there too. But it is not on my iPhone. The icons appear on none of the home screens, not even after a home screen reset, nor does it show up when I use the new search function on the iPhone.
I'm pretty sure it disappeared after I updated it to it's latest version. And the problem seems to be spreading. I bought the Pingdom iPhone app today in iTunes, and although it is on the sync list, it does not appear on the iPhone after multiple syncs.
I have tried resetting the iPhone's software and restoring from backup, but that did not help either. Does anyone have a possible solution for this?
