In some country's it's forbidden to shoot silent. Privacy law. If your phone can't, try "pimp my phone" at davinci.

Hi Simonc, in the camera settings, find "Shutter sound", if there isnt an option to disable it, then going into silent mode (press and hold # sign in the standby screen) might be the only way.

Just checked, on my unit there is an Off option asides from the Sound 1-4 choices.

Sometimes there isn't an option 'off'
I agree with hihihans, AFAIk in some countries its illegal to take pictures without making noise as it breaks privacy rights.
There are lots of ways to get round it even though there might be no option to easily disable it


    Replace the appropriate files via A2 Uploader either with silent ones or other sounds
    Upload a customize_upgrade to your phone
    Flashing to a different firmware which may give an "Off" option

Read this and the comments too:

Replacing files via A2 is the easiest method

Sorry for the late reply, missed your query. The "Off" option is in the same place as the Shutter sound options, it's very probable you don't have it since it's hard to miss. In which case mriley's suggestions may work for you.
