You do know the camera on the storm doesn't work...right?
1. phone displays "invalid video format" when playing back a video taken with the camera on the phone.
2. up to 10 second delay from click of shutter button to actual picture being taken - making it very difficult to take the picture you want
3. shutter button does not appear
4. when leaving the camera and entering another app, when inside other app (i.e. email,facebook,dialing phone,etc.) the camera begins to take over the screen - showing a "window" with the camera image
Yes, I tried a battery pull to see if that would help.

I hadn't used the camera with the old firmware on our test storms here at work, but with the newer firmware (software platform 22.214.171.124... I'm never sure which number actually is used to denote a certain firmware the newest official one anyway) I don't encounter any of these problems. It's also not really that slow. The only problem I have with the camera is just that it's still not very good, like most other smartphone cameras, but that's probably because I've been spoiled by SE cybershot and nokia N-series phones with great cameras...
Anyway, try upgrading your firmware .
