    Does your camera beep or click when you first start it up? I'm not asking about when it is trying to autofocus. Mine does and I need to know if this is the hardware issue that will require me to get a replacement.

    Mine Does...

    BTW - Speaking of Camera, where can you turn off the Camera Click/Picture Taken Sound? It's very shrill....

    I'm not sure if it's a hardware issue or not, but it sure does seem that way. Mine does click or whatever you want to call it now when you start it up and when it's trying to focus (which it doesn't focus very well now either).

    I dont really have a click at start up, but am going to return to my verizon store tomorrow, my camera will almost never focus and is always red cornered, i can take my sons and shoot the same exact scene and its green most of the time with the occasional red.

    Please let us know what is the result. We all have 30 days and if a patch doesn't come out I'll be returning mine.

    If your volume is on vibrate, the camera sound will not occur during a picture.

    I am pretty sure it is a new law that all camera phone must make a noise when a picture is taken. This is to protect unsuspecting people from being filmed...at least I think that is the case

    Next time you activate the camera mode, look closely at the lens (if it clicks). You can see the lens moving in and out, but is it supposed to do that? I have yet to see a definite yes or no on that part though?

    Yeah, that's the autofocus.

    As far as it being a law, it's to prevent pervs from doing upskirts in stores and such. It was due to some lady getting pissed because it happened to her and beating the snot out of some dude she didn't know. I remember seeing it on the news a couple years back.

    I think it has a "Predator-like" (as in the movie, "Predator") clicking noise... a sort of techie-sound... but I have no high-pitched noises.

    Two week old thread and I'm not even sure what this means...?

    Not sure this is very relevant anymore since auto-focus is temporarily fixed.

    Don't say ALL. Blackberry doesn't, and some blackberry devices are downright impossible to disable.

    If you're wondering, silent mode for the camera will do this, so either ringer off or vibrate.
