    well if you don't know what it means, I think it's safe to assume you are not rooted. Could you explain the process you did to uninstall the market? I didn't even realize that was possible on a stock phone.

    Ur sure ur not rooted? Maybe u did one of those one touch roots or u got the phone from someone that was rooted before u? Cause there really shouldn't be a way to uninstall the market without rooting it's a real head scratcher that u could even do it through manage applications rooted or not

    Thank you both so much. I turned off my phone and turned it back on. And its back! :) Maybe it letting me uninstall it was just a glitch or something, cause it was completely gone.

    Awesome, glad you got it back. Yeah it probably just deleted the icon so it seemed like it actually deleted the entire market. I had a feeling a reboot would fix it.

    Haha, I'm really over dramatic when it comes to my phone since I like messing with things and not knowing how to fix the problem, lol.

    But thank you :)

    Well if u like messing with things take a look at rooting that gives u access to anything custom roms, themes, kernels etc u can change anything u want on the phone text colors anything however u d run the risk of bricking ur device and u are messing with system level stuff but if ur like me it's a ton of fun and once u get to coding if u ever play with it that long it's even more
