    Im using OS 6.0.0.246 (upgrading OS only in 2 weeks due to exams) on a torch 9800 AT&T unlocked.

    previously, i can snap pictures without any problems.

    today however, when i tried to take a picture, it just wouldnt take! no matter how hard i pressed the side key or the screen, it will only show me that green “focusing” box!!

    I did a battery pull. The first picture after which could be taken. The second picture onwards, however, is back to the same problem!!

    I have tried changing modes, changing saving locations and etc to no avail. The last thing i did was install that zombie game featured here..

    Another problem I seen is that when you have geotagging turned on if you are indoors or have location services turned on the camera can’t pinpoint your location so it won’t take your pictures.

    I wonder why geotagging would prevent you from taking a picture indoors. Yeah, I get it that you probably won’t get a GPS lock indoors, but BlackBerry has been able to geotag photos for a long time now, and lack of GPS fix has never stopped BlackBerry before OS 6 from taking photos.

    Really makes me wonder what a zombie game has to do with the camera :) Shoddy developer?

    I had that same problem the other day on my 9700, OS5.979. I was at the gym, finished my cardio and usually I just snap a picture of the screen so I can write my time down later. Well, I stood there for about 5 min trying to get my camera to take a pic, finally did a reset, still no pic, so I just emailed the numbers to myself. An hour later, I was riding in a car, tried it again, and snapped a picture, no problem. Snapped several more, haven’t had a problem since. It’s never happened before and unfortunately, I have no clue what I did to fix it.
