Hi and welcome to

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you with your Android issues.

Please first try to look in applications. See if there is Market app there.

If not, please reboot your phone. See if Market comes back.

If not, you can do a factory reset. This will wipe your data out on the phone. Please backup before you do this. Thanks.

If this does not work, please bring your phone to a local phone store or your Service Provider retail store. Ask them to restore the phone for you. Thanks.
