Apps pushed into the forbidden 10th home screen are lost forever

I was moving apps around and accidentally overloaded my 9th home screen by one icon. The last icon on the screen happen to be (at the time) the App Store icon. It was moved to the black abyss of the mysterious and inaccessible 10th home screen and was never seen again. When I tried to remove some apps from the 9th home screen, the App Store didn't move back to where it was before. End result: my App Store is gone forever.

I am currently doing a full restore and we'll see if that brings it back...

That is the dumbest thing I have heard of. If the phone is only going to allow 9 screens, the it shouldn't allow an app to be moved any farther.
Thanks for the heads up and I do think a restore will bring it back, but that is a pain to have to do for something you shouldn't have been allowed to do in the first place.

Haha.

Ok I figured out the fix to this: restart the phone. Any apps that have been pushed to the 10th screen are put back in the first open space available. In this case it put my App Store app back on page 2. Whew.
