  1. Jacye is wrong. When you disable it, it disappears from the list, which makes pressing enable impossible. You need to press the button to the left of physical home button, while you are in settings/application manager/all screen. You should see an option that says “Reset app preferences” which will reset all the apps you disabled back to normal.
