Nice answer - be sure to tick it as the solution when the timeout expires. Glad you found the add one cert option. Also, I realized you might get everything back in order if you apply the latest combo update from apple.com/downloads...

I can't even begin to guess what cert chain you had. They can be added by MDM profile, file if the user takes action, but the vast, vast majority of people only get certificates in their keychain as part of the OS initial installation and OS updates from Apple exclusively.

The trust chain doesn't work that way on OSX. It would be a huge security risk to have the browser heal itself downloading new certs from the Internet, no?

There is a user keychain, a system keychain and frankly, the procedure to do that is well documented and it takes about 3 minutes of your time to execute things. Who says you'll not make things worse by trying to muck with ssl trust chains... The lack of detail in your post made me choose the easiest fix for you. I'll make a real answer with the locations of the files you have mistakenly removed parts of the trust chain.

Do you have a backup? If so, you can restore the files. If not, you can back up, erase and reinstall the OS and then restore the backup.

comment Carrier gone from settings app
Let's start on describing what OS level is on the phone and whether it's locked/unlocked and if it's jailbroken. Normally, you back up the phone and restore when the carrier settings don't update, but perhaps you have something not normal in your setup.
