    Hide Camera

    Advertisement



    Ok, so I've had my 8320 for a few months now and I think I'd now be completely lost without it. Problem is, I've just accepted a new job and am not supposed to have a camera phone. Any ideas on how to hide it? I carry it in a Seido case so the camera is always facing out. I'd really like to NOT carry it in my pocket.

    good luck. there is no after-market back door for the curve to hide the camera currently. we aren't allowed camera phones at my job either. if you get caught your screwed.

    All I can think of is this;

    Get some black electrical tape. And Tape it on the back of the phone. Use a razorblade to neatly trim it to cover the chrome only, as if you were taping if off for paint. I dont think that would be noticable. Worth a try, the worst that could happen is no worse than what your doing now.. lol

    There are a few job environments that a camera could be seen as a violation of privacy and/or cause security concerns- such as working in a court house/law firm, working for any of the major financial services (banks, hedgefunds, stock trader, etc), hospitals the list goes on and on.

    Protection of intellectual data is also a biggie.... Whether it be a MFG company like ours, or a medical research, even some universities. A lot of salespeople are also prohibited when the go to a customer site. We allow camera phones but not on the production floor.

    I can't find it, but I know there is a post here somewhere where somebody in the same situation actually pried their camera out of their Pearl. If you are brave enough, I guess.

    I would try the electrical tape solution, although I imagine your job will want something more permanent.

    The 88XX series don't have cameras...probably not what you want to hear but it may be a solution.

    Be very careful about violating company security rules. In most companies that is subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination. Get a second phone to take into work. and leave the Blackberry in the car.

    NEEZY- do you have any pics of your work? any websites where your work is on?

    Taking up your offer might be a good route- because 8800 is kind of a brick compared to curve. lol

    No disrespect to 8800 owners- lol
