    Is it possible to temporararily disable the camera function on the
    T610? My company has banned camera phones for security reasons, so if
    I stop that function from working then arguably there isn't a problem.

    TIA,

    Colin

    Camphones have thrown up a whole raft of etiquette & moral issues. The
    canny paparazzo will have a phone with the plugin camera in their
    pocket. Can't you convince Security that the camera is so poor that its
    only use is a basis for abstract art? The problem with disabling the
    camera is that it's likely to be permanent & needs to be obvious. I
    suggest an automatic centre punch on the lens or using another phone for
    work - perhaps one provided by Security!

    just *try* taking out the camera module bit after opening up the phone and
    see if it boots

    How about putting a piece of duct tape over the lens?

    The problem with any kind of "temporary" disabling is that it is
    reversible, so if I was in charge of security, I would not accept that.
    And I would probably also not accept permanently disabled cameras because
    it's very difficult to police.

    Do you need the T-610 features at work? Else, you could get a cheap second
    phone and move the SIMs between the T610.

    The other possibility is to contact your provider and ask if they would
    exchange the T-610 for a T-68. Maybe if enough people do that, they will
    get the message.

    I tried getting a T-68 from T-Mobile USA; the only non-camera phone with
    Bluetooth available. Unfortunately, they wanted twice as much for the
    T-68...

    camera outside work, yet have a phone without a camera inside work
    (mca-25) im after a t610 fancy doing a straight swap? it will come
    with spare cover and 2 spare batteries.

    Thankyou, but no thankyou! I'm in the UK anyhoo. My T610 is only
    about a month old and I quite like it, so I'm going to stick with it.
    I'll just have to be discrete when I need to use it.

    Thanks anyway.
