Do you have the ability to navigate the folders that are present in the application list? Look in each one and see if the missing icons are there. I am presuming that you have attempted a battery pull already.

You must have "Dial from Home Screen" set to "No" (go to Phone dialer screen > Options > General Options.)

Also note that you only need to tap the key to get these applications - if you hold down the keys then the appropriate Speed Dial number is still dialed.

Once the above is set to NO, now, from the homescreen, tap the O key... (not zero, but the O for Options.)
