    -----------[ THIS APPLIES TO JAPAN ONLY / I DONT KNOW ABOUT OTHER COUNTRIES ]-------------------

    There is a law in Japan, that require Mobile phones to have a "shutter" sound when using the camera. Well yes there is a shutter sound on the iPhone that can't be turned off or can it?!

    While playing a song, you can take a picture without the shutter sound going off.
    So if you are in Japan, give it a shot.
    1) Plugin the headset
    2) Play a song
    3) hit the home button
    4) open the camera app and take a picture

    I am sure there will be a new wave of "up-the-skirt" porn hitting Japan...

    What country and what carrier?

    If the answers aren't

    1) Japan
    2) Softbank

    then we are talking about the same thing. I have tested 3 phones already. Same results. No shutter sound.

    We don't have 1G/2.0fw, it's 2G/2.0 here.


    how clear can these damn pics be haaaaaa
    It doesn't really matter. Other phones aren't that great either. But it still cause the government to create the law/policy.

    Beyond that, I am planning to head to a Softbank shop and show them. It's always great to see the horror on their faces.

    no I said that cuz you guys are saying that there's ways to bypass the shutter sound and I said all you have to do is put it on silent. So do japanese iPhones always make the shutter sound, even when it's on silent?
    I am not a jailbreak n00b

    Not like they'd be able to hear it with the iPhone's speaker

    that can be easily fixed by a special software patch if it becomes a real legality.

    Yes you can jailbreak the iphone and patch it but the iphone 3g's in japan always make a sound when you take a picture if it is not jailbroken and patched. its kind of weird if you ask me, that this became so bad that they had to make a law prohibiting phones that don't make a loud shutter sound when the camera takes a picture. If you are a creep and that is honestly something you really want in a phone, it seems like the iphone wouldn't be ideal for that anyway because the phone is touch screen so it would be a bit harder to take a picture without being able to see/feel where the button is to take the pic up some poor beezies skirt

    Just flip the silent switch on? :P
    Works on the 1st Gen, don't have a 3G handy to test it on.
    or just replace the shutter sound with a blank sound file or
    use a photo app that doesn't have a sound.

    There is no way to enforce the shutter sound imo.

    It's too late anyways.

    Softbank has it out all over jp, not like you can take a decent pic with a weak 2mgp camera.
    In jp we had 2 mgp's 4 years ago.

    p.s upskirts are the best!

    Haha....

    and yeah, all other phones here make the shutter sound even when in silent mode. I guess the serious upskirter will find other methods though - at risk of doing jail time, losing your job, and having your name and face plastered all over television and the media if you're caught. Can't see how ANY blurry panty-pic is worth THAT risk.

    I'm guessing softbank would have modded the iPhone here to always make the shutter sound? (They modded my WM6 device to the point of uselessness - hence tentatively considering an iphone, but one purchased outside Japan legally unlocked such as HK - coz I don't know what softbank have messed around with, nor if I can ever unlock it to avoid roaming charges and use local prepaids when travelling. I mean, what if I move back home to Australia in a year, my Softbank iPhone will be relegated to an iTouch level?)

    blah blah blah yawn

    My Softbank iPhone is the same as my old AT&T iPhone. They didn't mess with it at all. Which is why Apple went with them and not Docomo. Docomo wanted to change everything. iMode for instance, what a waste.
    My Softbank iPhone works with Docomo sims now :P (YellowSn0w )
