    When I use the camera, it will not take photographs correctly. It will beep and show me a green box. I assume that's focusing. Then ... nothing.

    The ONLY time it takes a photo is if I literally swipe my camera across the image I want to take. I don't know how to describe this accurately. Take your phone, put it up like you're taking a photo, then move it abruptly from left to right. Obviously, all your shots will be blurry.

    I am new to Android ... maybe I have an auto focus setting wrong. But this should be really easy to use! Point, auto focus, click ... done.

    Will not work normally.

    Help! Thanks in advance.

    Are you pressing the button down further after you get the box/green square? I believe it is a 2 step button just like on the original Droid so after the beep/green box you need to press the button down the rest of the way.

    ^^ If that doesn't work, then go back to Verizon and see if they can replace it. It could be a faulty device.

    Fixed the problem. It was my Verizon case. Not on tight enough. Have to push the button very hard. Thanks for the quick responses.
