    Has anyone figured this out yet? Putting "system volume" at 0 doesn't work. Thoughts?

    Its an anti peeping tom measure. It goes off so people know that a picture is being taken. If you root your device there are steps you can take to mute the sound though.

    That is absurd. The sound is ridiculously loud.......it's the little things like this that drive folks to root.

    There's an app in the market called silent snap free. Worked for my Evo 3d. Note that your phone does need to be silent for it to work.

    Let's pool our efforts there.

    Alright guys, I've been calling and emailing around trying to find a legit (no rooting) solution to this. Nobody I've found yet has given me a good answer (although sprint tech support was helpful and really tried). Oh and by the way, the AT&T variant allows you to turn off the noise. This might even just have been an oversight on the Sprint version!

    So here's what we're gonna do. Make this a vocal problem.

    Sprint email support:
    Email Us
    Sprint support phone:

    Samsung email support:
    Get Downloads, Firmware, Manuals and Software for Samsung SPH-D710ZKASPR (link on page)
    Samsung phone support:
    Samsung twitter support (here's the option to make our complaint really visible)
    and more specifically
    Tweet at both of them! Get the message out there!

    Always be polite, but explain your frustration. Explain that you take pictures in places where noise is distracting and rude like museums, or in an office. Neither Sprint nor Samsung from what I've found has had any reason for this, they just say "it's not a supported feature".

    Take the time. Make the calls. Send the emails. We can get this done.
    They may take our lives.. but they will never take our FREEDOM!!! ...
    got a little carried away there.
