    Hi. Im after some advice with my new phone. Ive had it a month or so and all has been pretty great but for the last week Ive noticed a really anoying fault. Im unsure if its my phone or something Ive done or am doing. So about 80% of the time my camera works and takes awsome pics but on the anoying occasions..I can open the camera app and all is fine...I press to take pic...and it makes the noise it does when u take a pic...BUT THEN...the pic doesnt actually take and then all the buttons ( back/settings etc ) freeze up and I cant do anything..the screen stays on the moving camera but all I can do is press the actual big button at bottom of phone which returns to homescreen. So assuming the camera is crashing?? To get it working Im having to remove battery...which is a serious pain in the bum each time i wanna take a pic and the moment has passed!! Please help someone...do I need to ring vodafone and tell them my phone is faulty ??

    Hi Lauren, you may need to clear the camera's cache.
    1. Go to Settings
    2. Go to More
    3. Go to Application Mangler Manager
    4. Slide over to All
    5. Select Camera
    6. Click the Clear Cache button.

    If that doesn't do it then back up your photos and then come back and click the Clear Data button.
    If that still doesn't do it you may need to do a factory reset on your phone (after backup up your data).

    Looks like it may be time to do that factory reset.

    Dont know if I should or not...hate doing that as takes so long to put it back to the way it is Do you think it will actually work if I do? Im thinking Maybe I should just report it faulty! X

    Well, if you report it as faulty and get another phone you'd have to set it all up too. If you do a factory reset and it doesn't work then you could put in that insurance or warranty claim.

    Yes, I agree with Haalcyon.
    Either way you'll have to set it up to your liking.
    Good luck! :thumbup:
