    Camera and Phone Number Questions for Curve

    Advertisement



    Been looking at manuals doing searches pretty in depth and looking at the phone options, but perhaps I am missing the obvious. Would anyone know the following:

    1. How do you turn of the "click" sound when taking a picture with the phone?
    2. How would you block your number on the phone so it will come up as private on someone else's caller ID?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions and assistance!!

    As far as blocking your number, go to the phone screen by pressing the green phone button, tap the menu key and select Options. Once inside, select General Options then set the "restrict my identity" option to always. Let me know if this works for you.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~The camera click not being able to turn off has to do with privacy isses. I guess so someone know when you are always taking a picture. As for the blocking your number EB has it perfect.

    I've read that the way to get rid of the sound is to replace it with a silent sound file with the same extension. I'll look for it and post it here if I can find it again.

    To work around the camera click I have my head sets plugged in.

    I read from another thread that if you want your camera to not make the shutter sound, simply call someone (i.e. voicemail) and when you take a picture, the camera sound isn't there. So basically, call someone and then go to your camera and then take a picture.

    Also, if you don't want to change the settings on your caller id, you could always dial *67 before the number that you are calling. That usually blocks your number so the other person can't see it.

    Yes, this is what I do when I don't want someone to see my number. For example, in the US to call 1 (555) 444-3333 You would dial:

    *6715554443333

    That way you can just block THAT call. Most people don't like picking up on blocked numbers, so I don't recommend you leave it on unless absolutely necessary.
