    Can you mute the shutter sound?

    It cannot be turned off in the settings, but assuming our variant will work the same was as the International version, there is a "hack" that accomplishes it. Here is a link to a site that has instructions:

    How To: Disable Camera Shutter Sounds on Samsung Galaxy S II | TechnoBolt

    FYI I haven't tried this so I cannot confirm that it works.

    Look for this in the market

    I have only read about this working, I have not used it yet.

    Lets 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:
    888-211-4727

    Samsung email support:
    Get Downloads, Firmware, Manuals and Software for Samsung SPH-D710ZKASPR (link on page)
    Samsung phone support:
    1-888-987-HELP
    Samsung twitter support (here's the option to make our complaint really visible)
    Twitter
    and more specifically
    Twitter
    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.
