Re: cant use the camera on my phone!!!!!

Press the 'Shortcuts' button and go to 'Running applications'.
It could be that you were listening to music via a headset and the Walkman feature is minimised. Are there any icons along the top of the display like a green arrow or a white square with 'Java' in it?
Have you tried restarting the handset?

This message displays any time i try to access the camera. "could not start the camera. close other applications and try opening the camera again". please help.


This is what you should do, press and hold the menu key.. you'll get a display in a rectangular form with all programs that are currently running on your blackberry.

You can scroll through the open applications and for you to close all running applications, you'll have to click on your trick ball to get you to that open application and then you close it.

Go over the process of holding the menu key for about 10 seconds again until the rectangular window opens with applications that are currently open.

Click on another program and close it.... do this for all the applications until your have about 4 applications running. Once it's reduced to this you would be able run your camera.
