Turning off the camera shutter sound

How do you turn off the shutter sound of the camera? Even in vibrate only sound profile the camera still makes the noise when taking pictures.

There is no option in the phone to turn off camera sound, you will need a 3rd party app to have that option. You can try peek-a-boo, its a free app.

Re: Turning off the camera shutter sound

I'd think that RIM forces the sound to comply with the possible passage of H.R. 414, better known as the Camera Phone Predator Alert Act.  Here's the text of the proposed legislation:

 

SEC. 3. AUDIBLE SOUND STANDARD.

(a) Requirement- Beginning 1 year after the date of enactment of this Act, any mobile phone containing a digital camera that is manufactured for sale in the United States shall sound a tone or other sound audible within a reasonable radius of the phone whenever a photograph is taken with the camera in such phone. A mobile phone manufactured after such date shall not be equipped with a means of disabling or silencing such tone or sound.

 

(b) Enforcement by Consumer Product Safety Commission- The requirement in subsection (a) shall be treated as a consumer product safety standard promulgated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission under section 7 of the Consumer Product Safety Act (15 U.S.C. 2056). A violation of subsection (a) shall be enforced by the Commission under section 19 of such Act (15 U.S.C. 2068).
