The BlackBerry has several convenient features that allows the user to personalise the device. The user can take photos and record videos and personalise them directly on the device. The BlackBerry makes the sound of a camera shutter when taking a picture. Several third-party applications will silence this feature. Three of them are described here.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Download the BerryAnnoying application from BrotherSoft (see Resources). Roll the trackball to the "Internet" icon and press the trackball. Press the BlackBerry key and choose "Go To". Move the trackball to highlight the address field. Type the website address in the address field. Type "BerryAnnoying" in the website search bar. Click "Download" and click "OK" once it finishes downloading. Assign the application to the BlackBerry side convenience key by rolling the trackball on the BlackBerry to select the "Options" icon. Roll the trackball down to select "Screen / Keyboard". Roll the trackball down to select either "Left Side Convenience Key" or "Right Side Convenience Key". Press the trackball beside the convenience key and roll the ball to highlight and select the "BerryAnnoying" application. Press the back arrow key and go back to the main menu. Take a photo using the convenience key chosen.

  2. 2

    Download the CameraToGo application from Softpedia (see Resources). Restart the phone and set permissions in the BlackBerry. Roll the trackball to the "Options" icon and press the trackball in. Roll the trackball to "Advanced Option" and press the trackball in. Highlight and select "Applications" and choose "CameraToGo". Set the permissions to "Allow" by clicking on each option and rolling the trackball to the "Allow" option. Click on the "Camera To Go" icon and press the "Go!" button to start the camera. Set the mute option by choosing "manual timer". Click the side convenience key for the camera and take a photo.

  3. 3

    Download the QuickLaunch application from BlackBerry App World (see Resources). Click on the "QuickLaunch" icon on the BlackBerry menu. Click on the "QuickLaunch" icon. Press the BlackBerry key. Scroll down and select "Camera." Press the BlackBerry key again and select "Camera Shutter Mute."

Tips and warnings

  • The CameraToGo application does not mute the camera shutter on the Storm 9500 or any xx30 (CDMA) BlackBerry.
