    Default Camera click sound.

    A friend of mine has a Verizon N2 and somehow his camera click sound is off. But I can't seem to figure out how to do it on my sprint N2. The phones are the same so we should have an option. Has anybody figured out how to turn off the click noise when taking a picture?

    You can find in the settings and in the camera options. Select the option to turnoff click sound while taking picture.

    I just deleted the noise sounds from the system. If you want them for later, you can just move them to a different folder on a sd card. I believe you have to be rooted to do this though. There are 2 for the video recorder and 2 for the camera (actually I believe there is 4 but I think you only need to delete 2 of them).

    If you are rooted, use root explorer (I'm sure other file explorers will work too, but I know I couldn't find them with ES File Explorer) and go:
    system > media > audio > ui
    the files I deleted are:
    camera_click.ogg
    Camera_click_short.ogg
    Shutter
    Shutter multiple

    and for the video recorder, I deleted:
    cam start
    cam stop

    again, I don't think you need to delete them, just in case you want to put them back, just move them to another folder (might have to be on an external sd)... but I deleted them and have had no problems

    I wish it was that easy there is no option to turn off the sound.

    The Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T versions have a shutter sound toggle in the camera settings...not the Sprint version.

    I use an app called Silent Camera.... and Camera FX. Both do what you are seeking.

    That is pretty dumb to leave this out.

    Iirc, the photon was the first to leave that out... I guess it's so I can't sneakily take naked pics of my fiancee while she's sleeping...

    On a serious note, it doesn't bother me at all so I'm leaving it in.

    You also can't take pictures of babies, kids or pets without disturbing them and losing a picture moment. Sure, you can get 1 shot, but that's it. Also, why would anyone really want to try to be quiet about taking pictures during quiet moments like school plays and whatnot.

    Exactly! There are many reasons, this is a bad move.

    It is also against the law in some places to not have the shutter sound to prevent those candid pics.

    That being said, just rename the files above no new to move them.

    Whatever the file name is. Ogg. Bak....... will do the trick. Damn auto correct but you get the point

    I have the TMobile Note 2 and under settings while in the camera there is a toggle to shut off the shutter sound. Its down near the bottom of the list as shown.

    After Diordna11 post it's official only sprint doesn't have the shuttle sound. Is there official samsung forum where we can all complaint so they put it in the next update?
