    Question camera starts by itself?

    Advertisement



    at least 2-3 times a day, my blackberry will go into camera mode when i touch the pearl to light up the screen. i will then have to press red to exit out of camera. its really annoying that this happens to me daily. i am not purposely activating the camera at all. i was just wondering if anyone has had the same problem. if so, a solution of some sort too?

    i use the cingular grey pearl btw.

    Could it be that one of your fingers is pressing the convenience button on the side - which would start the camera?

    You can always change the convenience buttons to do other things - or nothing at all

    you don't have the short cut on your home screen do you?
    Maybe try using the volume keys to light up the screen, since they won't activate anything.

    also sinkers has a good point

    i am definitely not pressing the convenience button on the side. that would be silly of me. this definitely just rolling the pearl. and i dont have any short cuts to camera on my home screen either.

    the camera is definitely starting by itself when i pull it out of my purse... or ilght it up.... lame.... i cant figure out why this is happening.

    When you say convenience button - don't forget that there are two buttons - one each side
