And more importantly, satisfies the customer.

No, that's fair enough. Some places simply won't let you bring a camera phone, no matter what. As long as it's sorted. nice. I know I'd be a bit annoyed that I couldn't use my camera at any point, though!

The camera on my iPad Mini is still pretty good and my Nikon camera is excellent.

Yes, but you're unlikely to carry those with you all the time.

For those of us who work for this defense contractor, we either have to (1) give up our phone during the entire workweek, (2) not have a camera when we're out of work on our phone, or (3) have two phones. I do a combination of (2) and (3). No matter what you do, it's a trade-off.

Setting up call forwarding to an office phone could be used during the day if you left the phone in the car. Or get an old phone that doesn't have a camera, and an inexpensive prepaid plan (or, if have a family plan, add it to that) and automatically forward to that if you can take the phone in. That way, people only have to try 1 number to reach you.

I've been in places where phones aren't allowed period. There has been only one place where phones were allowed, but not camera phones. I bought an inexpensive camera less phone for that years ago, but never had the situation arise again

Maybe a cheap phone+call forwarding?

I buy the iPhone for all the functions it has, not to disable/remove it nonsense
Maybe his job is not for you then.

Wonderful to hear you didn't give into the extremely helpful "leave it in the car" crowd.

You really should read the OP's subsequent responses to the thread.

Or I could just do what I already said I did. The iPhone is so much more than a phone with a camera in it. Yes, call forwarding does solve the "phone" problem. But it does not solve the text, email, iPod music, iMessage, notes, reminders, radio problem. Need I go on?
