    Set up "Parental Controls," through settings... Security and Privacy.. then Parental Controls.
    All 3 should disappear, so make sure you have the icons/app on your screen.

    It worked for me on all the OS's. but, I'm not sure it'll do it on the latest OS.

    If not, you could either cut off your thumb or eventually learn to hold your device differently.
    also, they say, Duct Tape will fix anything!!

    (I know! You wish you had thought of that!)

    One last idea. If you continue to set off the camera be sure to smile!

    They really need to make an "Advanced User" mode.
    This mode would hide the floating bar and also give back the old swipe up and down call screen .
    And perhaps other things they've changed to make it "more user friendly" but that most of us advanced users are used to.

    I'd prefer to be able to choose the icons I could put there.

    Agreed. That's one feature that should be standard on all smartphones. I'm surprised that BB10 doesn't allow this. Hopefully BlackBerry will allow us in the future to customize which app can be placed in the bottom bar.

    Camera is the biggest problem for me. Need to be moved left toward ctr!

    While those 3 can't be moved....
    There "IS" a way to disable them. If you go into Parental Controls, you can disable practically everything.
    But, whatever you disable in Parental Controls, disables it for the entire system. So, while it's good if you don't want your child to access certain apps.. The parent can't use it either..
    But, if you don't use the camera much then it's a good solution for you.

    It's a flawed way of working it. And it should be renamed Controls Parent
    In my case, I should be able to disable it in PC and still have it work on the device because I'm not a parent!

    Go figure!

    B-B-But your post has perfect formatting! Oh the humanity!

    They really should let us choose the icon we want to put there indeed. And while their at it, they should let us assign our own function to the mute button, instead of the voice control

    Actually it's not formatted at all. It's just.......plain!
    But, thanks for the support. Just don't get too use to it. LOL

    But, seeing how the majority of members use the CB app and from what I can tell, I'm the only person out of about 6,000 that takes advantage of the on site editor, I'm slowly cutting back so I'm only going through minor withdrawals.
    But, I'll, no doubt, throw in a .gif here and there, when no one's looking!
