    I pushed my phone icon into my trash can in order to move around stuff on my homepage. I can't find it in my apps, how do I get it back?

    Have you tried to go into your apps menu and hitting the menu button then selecting 'show hidden applications'? Then un-hiding the app?

    I don't have any setting in my apps except if I want to see them in grid or list. I remember that setting tho but I'm pretty sure I don't have any apps hidden. ?

    You should be able to go into your app drawer, find your phone icon and transfer it to your home page. To do that long press on the icon once you find it and other options should show up. I use Go Launcher so I can just long press and slide my icon down to the bottom of the screen onto the whatever home screen I want. With stock Sense I just long press on the icon and it automatically goes to whatever home screen I last had open. Your S3 should work in somewhat the same way.

    The phone icon is not in my apps. I'm completely confused! I know where it's supposed to be and how to get it to my screen but it's not there! Ugh!

    I know you said you looked, but just to be clear cause you didn't mention this, but I'm pretty sure it's listed under "Dialer," not "Phone."

    Thanks but no dialer, just checked. I'd hate to go into verizon, they know nothing compared to the forums. :-(

    It's called "phone" and it should be in the app draw. It is on my gs3. If it's definitely not in the app drawer, than a factory reset should bring it back. Verizon is going to have you try the factory reset if you call them.

    Go to app drawer, hit menu button, and hit show hidden applications. Should see it then.

    Oh thank God! After changing the way I view my apps, to customizable, I was able to get the full menu. It was in the hidden apps!
    Thanks for the help everyone!
