    Just trying to get an idea of how many people out there specifically don't want (or can't have) a camera phone.

    When I went shopping, a phone without a camera was the #1 priority for me. My job requires me to go into a lot of manufacturing facilities, and about 75% of them have "No Camera" restrictions (and a few got sick of trying to figure out whether you have a camera, so they ban cell phones completely).

    The selection of phones without cameras is very sparse, even though the sales people say they get a lot of customers who don't want/can't have phones. Fundamentally, that's why I fell into my BB - the 8830 is the only smart phone Verizon offers without a camera.

    Anyway, vote away....

    i have my curve. but it doesn't really matter if i have a camera or not. i'ved an 8800, 8700c, 7290, 7100i with nextel, and 7250. so it doesn't matter. as long as its a blackberry.

    I call on accounts with such restrictions and simply lock the BB in the car. No big deal.

    88xx is the wisest choice for anyone who has restrictions like that.

    I also know that some fancy companies WILL give you a corporate Curve, but will lock out the camera function through BES.

    I'm fine though, nothing I am doing at the moment is restricted with either of my jobs.

    I like having a camera phone because i can take a picture at any moment if i need to... but for trips and vacations i always take my Lumix just in case.

    We used to have a no Camera Phone rule and then an exec with a new corporate BlackBerry with a camera was spotted and security had to take his conpany owned device away due to the rule. The rule changed quick!
