-CAMERA PROBLEM- (please help) ***
I try and use my camera and I get the message,
Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again.
Ive tried rolling back my phone to a previous Back-Up.
Ive tried deleting all current applications.
Could it be the new Software update that came out about 3 weeks ago?
I have the insurance plan, should I just go and get it replaced?

restore point?? that's the problem then--the Storm isn't supposed to use Windows...
insurance is not used for s/w issues--it's for loss or physical damage
oh: if you can't figure it out, CALL YOUR CARRIER FOR TECH SUPPORT, or go into one of their stores for assistance

Actually, this exact same thing happened to me a while back- not on my S2 but on my Bold. Same error message, but the only 'applications' I had open were the 5 that are always open. Unfortunately I can't for the life of me remember what fixed it. I do remember battery pulls did not solve it, but as you stated, you already know this. I'll have think about it and see if I can jog my memory- I wish I could remember!
I currently do not use Slacker Radio anymore. I used to a while ago but i currently no longer use it.
Any other suggestions?

I'm having the same issue right now. It started about 3 weeks ago. Here's what I've tried:
*reload the OS.
*downgrade the OS.
*security wipe (removing all applications).
*remove the media card.
*pressing firmly on the camera (some people said since it's a hardware issue this might fix it, basically reseating the camera.)
It's a hardware problem, I'm sure and VZW said they can't help me since it's out of warranty. So I'm out of options at this point. If anyone comes up with anything please let me know.

so at this point I'd like to stick with a BlackBerry smartphone and get the Monaco when it comes out in July/August. However, as a person that used to take several pictures a day with my BlackBerry, I'm going to have a hard time keeping this device until then since I can't take any video or pictures. And because I can't open either of those apps I've lost my flashlight too! Any body got any ideas on how to make it work? Got any ideas on how I can get a cheap replacement through Verizon or anyone else?

An my policy replaced a lost phone for me as well, about a year later.
