Re-installing will put the iTunes app icon back on your iPhone’s home screen.

The iPhone, a cellphone with a touch-sensitive display made by Apple, comes with the iTunes application already installed, so you can connect to the iTunes Store over the Internet via Wi-Fi or a cellular data network. There you can purchase and download songs and videos directly to the device. If you don't see the iTunes app icon on the iPhone's home screen, it means someone has disabled iTunes, because you can't uninstall a pre-installed iPhone app. This causes its icon to disappear from the screen. Change the Restrictions setting to put the iTunes Store icon back on your iPhone's screen.
