I accidentally deleted my u tube app on my iPhone 4 s how can I get it back.
If you are still on 5.x or lower and accidentally deleted the stock app with a jailbreak app, you can't get it back without restoring, but it's not worth restoring and losing your jailbreak if that's the case - just download one the YouTube apps in the App Store. At least one of them should be for 5.x. If you're on 6.x and deleted the App Store YouTube app, just download it again.

Oops. Do a restore (if you're taking about the stock app).
I covered all the bases in my post. It's likely this phone is jailbroken. It's not easy to delete a stock app when stock. If they are jailbroken, they probably aren't going to restore because they will lose their jailbreak. I offered alternate solutions.

Looks like the best answer, I should have it on my mind in case one day I lost my apps.

One post question and never came back? Hmmm! Looks like these bots are getting creative with creating what looks like real names.
That one looks like a legit facebook login. It's not uncommon for people to sign up, ask a question and then never return. Sometimes they look at the replies but don't comment.

Yeah I used to do that a lot.When I encountered a urgent problem I probably would just drop my question and see what happen.
