Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone
My Blackberry Curve 8300 could not start the camera. It is saying I should close other applications and try opening the application again but itstill will not work. Any other suggestions? I have restarted my phone after waiting 30 seconds and I have gone through the whole holding of the "alt key and pressing the back key to view the other applications but none of those work."
After reading many posts, I removed the back and and pulled out the battery, then removed the memory card and blew air all over it, put it back together in reverse order, and works like new.

The two solutions to this issue are to add a micro SD/SDHC memory card to the device, or to wipe the device (after prefoming a backup in Desktop Manager) to see if that works.
To wipe the device you will go to Options > Security Options > General Settings. Press the menu key, then select wipe handheld.

None of the things people are telling you work all you can do is if you have warranty still you can get a new one if you don't you can pay $19.00 to get it thats what AT&T told me and same when I had t mobile.

I had the same problem. After deleting all pictures and a game.I thought that would help. I ended up just taking the battery out and putting it back in, it worked but it took about 5 minutes to restart.

I was getting this same error for a very long time. I finally gave up, then today was searching how to repair camera. I took my phone apart using a T-5 driver, and used a air blower and blowed the entire inside of the camera, front and back. Put back together, was about to wipe it clean using the Jl_Cmder, but for the hell of it, tried the camera once more, and was amazed that it worked like it never went bad. Not sure if it will work for everyone, but it sure did for me.
GOOD LUCK, i am happy as can be!!!!
