    turn off shutter sound in camera?

    does anybody know of a way to turn off the shutter sound in the camera app? is there a way to find that sound file in the software and replace with a blank sound file?

    that makes sense.....still wish i had the option. i had a phone a while back, dont remember what it was, a motorola i think. anyway, there wasnt an option to turn shutter off, but someone found out which sound file it was, made a blank sound file of the samesize, renamed to match, then copied over. worked like a charm. wonder if someonr could figure it out on BB.

    Here are two links I think you will like one is a app that you install to turn off the shutter sound, and the other one is a work around

    BerryAnnoying - Personal Productivity BlackBerry Software

    Silence your BlackBerry Camera Shutter (Free Download) | BlackBerry Sync - BlackBerry News You Can Sync With...

    Hope that helps

    I haven't tried either one since the shutter doesn't bug me, but let me know how they work out.

    If you are trying these out, keep in mind to try it in both compatibility modes when you do. I have read that people have gotten non CDMA apps to work by switching the compatibility.
