    iPhone 4, front camera shutter always closed, is there a soluition?

    I have had this probem for the last few weeks,

    the rear camera works fine, but when i select the front camera the shutter remains closed and never opens.

    i have restored, set up as new iphone and updated the sftware, b ut the front camera shutter doesnt open and remains closed,
    i have read online of others having this problem and some suggesst changing the camera,

    which i got some to do, yet the same fault remains,

    is this a software fault which will be resolved in later updates or does anyomne know how to fix this?

    many thanks

    Plus one.

    If that doesn't work, take the phone to Apple and let them check it for a hardware defect.
    Your 4S should still be under warranty.
