I have a iP4s that has been great until recently. For unknown reasons my bookmarks have disappeared. I can save a website to my bookmarks and they are there. However, when I go directly to my bookmarks, I just get my recent browsing history. Any help to remedy this is appreciated.

Have you tried a hard reset? If not hold down the home button and power button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears (15-20 seconds or so) then release them and wait for the phone to finish rebooting.

The bookmarks should reappear after you reboot your phone.

This happened to me last week. I Googled it after deleting and adding my iCloud account back in didn't fix it. It seems to be a known problem that has affected a lot of people. The information I found said a reboot would fix it and it did.

Yeah, I tried the hard reset several times with no luck. This has happened once before but the bookmarks came back on their own, no rhyme or reason. I checked my settings and could not find anything. Really weird.

Did you try a regular reboot? Worked for me.

Yes, press the lock button (top button) and slide to power off. Then press it again and you'll see the Apple logo. Let me know if that fixes it for you.

Argh! Didn't work after doing the soft reset several times. Any other ideas? Thanks for your help Europa

May sound silly, but are you sure you aren't looking at your history and not the actual bookmarks? I have done that before.

No need to feel stupid. Sometimes it's the simple things that slip past us. Glad you figured it out.
