    The rear-facing camera (the regular one) on my phone stopped working. Whenever I try and open my basic camera app, my phone freezes and I get a message saying that my camera stopped working. I know the front facing camera is still working because I can access it through snap chat. I have tried accessing my back-facing camera through snap chat and the same error happens.

    My phone is completely up-to-date. Any help on how to get it working again would be much appreciated.

    It sounds as if the camera itself is bad, but it would take a technician working on the phone to make sure. That would mean a camera replacement.
