    Factory reset is actually "factory remove any information I've added since I got the phone". It doesn't add deleted files (and uninstalled apps are deleted files). If you want to get back apps you've uninstalled, you'll have to reflash the ROM. (Not knowing which phone it is, I can't give you links to instructions, but you can google them - reflash <my phone model> rom. (Without the <> brackets.)

    Welcome to Android Central. If you could uninstall them then they weren't part of the factory firmware and therefore wouldn't show up after a reset. It would be helpful to know which device, OS version you are using.
