    No option to use front facing camera

    I just picked up a droid razr maxx from craigslist. I set it all up last night and everything is working fine. This morning I went to use the camera to take a normal picture and noticed that I don't have the option to switch to the front facing one like I had on my regular droid razr. I FDR'd the phone after I got it, and I just got done fastbooting the phone to the official .211 OTA. Neither of these worked in getting the front facing camera option back. Is there a simple option that I'm missing?

    Try installing another camera app... Maybe camera ics. My guess is the phone does not detect the front facing camera but and different camera app won't either but you can find out.

    It sounds like it is a hardware problem... Non working front facing camera. Believe it or not, the phone is covered by warranty even though you got it at ebay. But you would have to get it back to stock first.

    How is the phone covered by warranty if he bought it on eBay? Warranty is why I've shied away from buying from eBay/Craigslist.
