    Last night I lost all of my bookmarks and reading list on my iphone 4. I knew there was no way I deleted it myself. My bookmarks and reading lists are really full so I was really upset.

    To my relief, the fix is super easy. Double tap your home button so that the most recent things you have done on your phone are open at the bottom of your screen.


    Hold your finger on your Safari window browser until they start to jiggle and show a red minus sign at the top corner.


    Click on the minus sign for Safari. When you reopen your safari browser, your bookmarks and reading list will be restored.
