    Hey there, I'm new to the TB, and I have to say, I love this thing so far, great speed, 4G speed is amazing, and the camera is fantastic for a phone camera.

    Question about the camera though: If I want to focus on something not in the center of the screen, I tap where I want the focus, and it focuses there for a second. When I tap the shutter button however, the camera re-focuses in the center. Any ideas out there on how to change the camera focus point?

    Thanks for the reply.

    Does it take the picture on the first tap? Mine focuses where I tap, then blinks like it took a picture, but there is no shutter sound, and no picture on the SD card. Maybe I need to try a factory restore or something.
