Galaxy S2 Camera Issue

    Wondering if anyone has an idea about a camera problem with my phone. When I go to the camera, everything loads except the buttons. I've waited for up to a minute for the control buttons to show, but they will not, and even the bottom row of controls where the home and back button are located, remains black.
    The phone freezes and will not return to normal until repeated attempts of pressing the screen lock/off-on button. After three or more shutdown procedures, the phone will return to normal, I will open the camera and the buttons are visible.

    To try a fix, I have done battery pulls and cleared the camera cache.

    Any ideas? The phone has never been damaged, wet or other problems. It is really frustrating to be in Walmart, see something interesting and not be able to capture the moment!

    Oh well, it was time to change phones and the camera freezing up the whole unit gave me an excuse. I am now the proud owner of a Galaxy Alpha. NICE phone! Does everything the Skyrocket did......and more.......much faster. And in a package the same size. I wasn't thrilled with the size of the 5.
