    Everytime I push the gold camera button on my droid, the compose text message box opens up.

    I have to go through the menu, click camera and then the gold button actually takes a picture...

    Weird huh?

    Can I change this?

    Thanks

    John

    Having the exact same problem, John. Started yesterday. Weird. I've been through all of the settings and I can't find a fix. Hopefully someone will reply with a suggestion.

    Hey guys. Here's what I'm thinking.

    Have you guys been holding down the gold key? That's how it starts up the camera.

    When you have the box, have you tried typing something in, then hitting the return key? It's shaped like a U-Turn sign. See where the text goes.

    Did you recently install any programs? I think handcent has an option for this. I know I had an app do this, I just don't recall which.

    Yes, I've held down the camera button. It's the way I've brought up the camera and taken pics - all Thanksgiving weekend long. Thank you for the suggestion, though. I sent myself a text from the box that popped up and it didn't do anything.
