Galaxy S3 shutter sound

Answered

Hey,

 

Stock Galaxy S3 has the option to turn off the shutter sound for the camera. Telstra's branding takes away this functionality. Only way to stop shutter is to enter the phone in to silent mode. Could it please be fixed for the Jellybean update?

 

Also, information on the update page about when we will get Jellybean would be nice too, please.

 

Cheers,

James

If it's anything like the S2 then there is no way to do it that doesn't void your warranty =(

Ah. Right you are, mostly. It's an option on US phones, but not international - as dictated by law. To stop perving. Fair enough, though it's rubbish that it makes the noise 8 times when take a burst-mode shot.

Haha that would be painful. I hate the sound too, it's just so loud.

I cover the speaker hole thing with my finger ;-) 
It muffles it atleast, although it makes taking a picture fairly awkward 


I'm usually trying to take photos of puppies in Pet Stores to send to my Fiance with the hope he will crack and let me get one. But I don't want to make it obvious that I'm taking photos of them, thus my muffling ;-)

Yeah, absolutely fair enough. It's not like perverts will root their phone and disable the sounds where as us who actually want to keep our warranty are stuck with teh God awful noise of it.

 

Also, the question was to have this functionality added to the Jelly Bean update, how exactly is this solved?
