    If you have sprint they disabled the silent setting for the camera. Put your phone on vibrate or silent and that should silence the camera also.

    The only way I see is to put it on silent mode, or Turn the Sound toggle off in notifications

    This is always the first request it seems on more new devices.

    1. The carrier allows the camera to be silenced from within the Camera app settings or by simply silencing the volume levels, notifications, etc.

    2. The carrier/region has removed the option of silencing the Camera click due to different areas of the world having laws prohibiting disabling the sound per privacy laws.

    3. As with the S3 it ended up most had to root their device to disable the function if the carrier/region removed it.

    If your on AT&T you can disable this in camera settings. Camera>menu>settings>hit the gear and scroll down and you see the shutter sound toggle. I turned mine off ASAP.

    The camera silence problem... I encountered and researched this myself, one of the reasons I left Sprint, one of the more minor reasons, but none the less.

    I frequent art gallery and symphonic events where this was a problem, silencing the phone was the fix, however I also attend political events/meetings where it is acceptable and more so necessary to receive calls, while at the same time unacceptable and a nuisance having the 'damn' camera shutter sound go off for every picture snapped.

    In brevity, short of rooting, AT&T was the solution.

    I downloaded the Camera ICS app on my S2 on Sprint. Iunno if it is compatible with the S4, but check it out. You can silence the shutter sound in that app.

    ProCapture Free lets you disable the sound, however the free version limits the resolution to 3.2MP. The paid version says it allows higher resolution pictures. Camera ICS sounds good. Going to try it to see what resolutions it supports.

    Install Enforced Stream Silencer, open the app and check box to disable camera shutter sound.

    It's worked for me on Motorola Photon and Galaxy S4 for Sprint. Phone does not need to be rooted or unlocked.

    Sprint is getting better at this.....

    The Kyocera Torque still has a shutter with the
    Enforced Stream Silencer & Camera ICS.

    Setting the phone/volume to silence does not help either.

    Also looking to fix the hooks for the Audio Sources Mic works (Ambient/speakerphone), but voice uplink, voice downlink, and whole conversation does not work either.

    Does anyone know anything about this app? I have much caution about installing random apps! I am sick of getting the stink eye from people at events like my sons play from the stupid loud crack of the shutter sound! How does this app work? How does JB+ silence it? It seems there is a few different methods but the TW camera app does have a lot of useful features. I am just wondering how they do it with no root?!
