can't figure it out help
You just mute the phone, then it won't make sound.
If you are rooted, you can remove the sound permanently.
LOL, I just might root my phone just for that reason!!!
Who at google/HTC said 'yeh this sound is good for the camera' <_<
It sounds like it's not complete and the first time I took a picture it made me jump!
I'm rooted so I removed the sound so I don't have to mute. Odd that there isn't an option to disable the sound though.
Yeah I hate the sound and flash while going for a covert shot. ;-)
There's an app for that!
Yeah, maybe they added it to protect the ladies from perverts, huh?? lol
Actually, this is a very plausible reason for it. Many Asian companies have had the shutter sound on camera phones to be an almost permanent feature to attempt to stop 'unsolicited' shots from been taken and since HTC is one of those companies I'm not surprised at all that removing the shutter sound isn't in the camera options.
Still, it's an annoyance that you do have to put the phone on mute in order to get rid of the shutter sound.
In many parts of the world it is a legal requirement, and removing it can land you in trouble.
I'm not trying to take covert shots, but I'd like to be able to take pictures during quiet moments without everyone turning and looking at me (for example for those who don't believe me: inside of a church during a wedding)
Where do I find the app to mute the camera sounds?
Also why the hell can't I find Home++ that everyone keeps talking about.
Maybe I should start a new thread.

I believe there was such a problem with covert "upskirt" cellphone pics on subways in Japan that muting the shutter was made illegal at the manufacturing level a couple years ago.
