Camera Turns on While Sending E-mails

Two or three times now, when I've been trying to compose an e-mail, the camera has come on and filled up the space above the keyboard with the image seen through the lens.  I hit the back button on the right side of the phone and it returns me to the composing screen, but with the camera picture still overlaid on it until I start typing, which refreshes the screen and clears out the camera image.

Re: Camera Turns on While Sending E-mails

The camera turns on when i am adding any text to my phone. It is only a camera view with no setting buttons to turn it off. None of my buttons turns it off. I have to pull the battry sometimes to reset the phone. It happens when you wait to long to key in a number or letter. I hope someone has a solution. It is very annoying

Re: Camera Turns on While Sending E-mails

I just had the same problem while browsing the web.  Instead of the camera, the video player began playing one of my videos from my library.  I couldn't do anything to get it to return to the blog I was reading.  I had to hold the power button to power it off.  I could still see scroll arrows that were overlaid on the video, but the rest of the content in the browser was obscured.  Looks like a bug, but I'm not sure how to reproduce it.

Basically the phone sucks!  I have all the same problems and accelerator is horrible whe you change the angle of the phone.  It is beyond me how Verizon could relaese such a piece of sh--.  Im returning it and going back to AT&T.   good job RIM...good job verizon.  This phone is not even in the same league as the iphone.

Re: Camera Turns on While Sending E-mails

Can someone tell me how to browse through the videos I capture using the BB Storm camera ?

 

Once I find my video, how do I download to PC ?

 

Thanks
