I was installing a skin for a flip clock weather widget and during the installation everything froze, so I had to removed the battery. After putting everything back together and restarting, the phone factory reset on startup and I noticed that all of the Vodafone apps were gone. I then unmounted the 16gb class 6 sd card, I had installed, and factory reset my self but still the apps were missing.
I don't know if the icons have just been removed or the apps have actually been deleted, leaving me with more storage space, however everything seems to be working just fine although I would like to know if I should be worried? Could this be a hardware issue? The only problem I had was when I reinstalled the SD card, after formatting it on my laptop, I noticed that there were only about 3 folders created, but I'm pretty sure there were more the very first time I inserted the SD card. Also when I tried to take a picture the default camera app said that the SD card was not mounted or not present when it was mounted and it was present as I had already installed a few apps to the SD card and they were working fine. This issue was solved by viewing the picture in the app itself and then I notied the DCIM folder was created on the SD card.
I have not rooted my phone or tampered with anything like that and I'm not missing the Voda apps but I would like to know if there is anyway to get my phone back to where it was before it crashed and if this could be something more serious that will only get worse.
Thanks for any input :-) .
