    How to mute the camera noise - will work on most cell phones at least most phones that allow a phone call and camera running at the same time .

    This will work without and with a headset and or BT headset .

    Start a phone call , mute or lower the volume all the way . Start you camera and take a pic and the camera noise will not be heard . This has worked on all of my BB's with a cam and my S/E w800 .

    This thread should be deleted. There is only one use for this and its illegal. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Not that I care about this feature but I was just wondering how and why it would be illegal?

    Illegal?

    Stating that the 'only' use of this is illegal makes you sound like an extremist. I'm sorry, but there are many uses that are legal and appropriate, such as a wedding, or taking pictures of your newborn child while they are 'sleeping'. I'd rather not produce a list of 1,000 reasons why this is not illegal, but hopefully you can use common sense (which is harder to find these days). If your mind simply thinks of illegal uses, then I'd say you might have those tendencies yourself.

    i take pictures of my cats together when they sleeping etc. the friggin camera sound ruins the pictures b/c the cats are like "Wtf is that?" and either wake up or move.

    SUCKS!!!!!!


    there needs to be a way to disable this damn feature. every cellphone out there lets you disable it except for the damn BB.

    It can be sometimes.
    As of yet there's no proper way to disable the noise though. And as far as I know, having a silent camera phone is only illegal in some places like Japan and Korea.

    I think that if you use the camera for the right reasons, then it's okay. For instance, sneaking up on cats, dogs, critters, etc. and taking adorable pictures of them. I mean, people who don't have bb's have the option of muting their shutters, so why not? Well, I would be very pissed if someone called someone else, lowered the volume and then brought their bb into the girls' locker room. So there, I think it's justified!

    Poor ladies in locker rooms, I agree. But it's not illegal... just highly perverted!
