IPhone Kill Switch

What's this story about a kill switch? Why is it in my iPhone? What does it do? Can I override it? Can Apple listen to my conversations?
Is this legal?!

The killswitch is in the rare case that you download an app from the AppStore which is later deemed to be dangerous. The "kill switch" can be used to sterilize that app, so it does not cause any damage, physical or software-related.

    The media creates unnecessary hype... usually it's a bunch of people who don't know anything about technology themselves, and try to scare people. I wouldn't be concerned. The killswitch is there for good measure

Iphone camera froze


Double Click the home button, and kill the app. wait a few minutes and try again.
if that doesnt work, try turning the phone off for a few minutes.
If this doesnt work, check to see if your phone has enough space in your usage settings under Genral in settings.
And if none of these work, your camera may be broken. Bring it to an apple store to see.

First try restoring the iPhone is iTunes you can find instruction for doing that here:
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1414

If that doesn't work you may need a new earpiece speaker. If it is under warranty Apple will repair that for you for free otherwise there are third party places that can fix it for you as well.

IF YOU FOUND MY SOLUTION HELPFUL PLEASE VOTE 4 THUMBS UP.

Thank you and Good Luck!
