    I was goofing around at work with my droid and I deleted the google search widget. Well, I found out how to get it back. I tried the same with the blue phone icon when I sent it to the trash, but now I can not find it.

    So basically, does anyone know how to put the blue phone icon back on the home screen?

    Thanks for the help,

    Ben

    Yeah, it's not a widget, it's an app. You need to drag it from the app drawer

    First, no need to panic. You will replace it just as you would with any other app shortcut you'd want to create.

    Open your app drawer, scroll to the phone app, long press it, and then you can drop it on any of your home screens.

    thanks guys, for some reason I must have went through the app drawer a dozen times and did not see it. But now that you said something about it, i found it.



    thanks again.
