    Clearly to take pictures looking up girl's skirts without them noticing, duh! Kidding...No, I didn't have my phone on silent, and I went to take a pic of my 2 year old niece sleeping, and the sound woke her up. I don't need the 'sound' when I take pics.

    It would be nice to allow some customization in iOS (custom text sounds, custom Mail sounds, turning off certain sounds when the phone isn't set to Silent).

    There are some countries (Japan I think) that are required by law to have the camera sound every time a picture is taken. This is to let others know what you've done. I believe this was due to people taking up skirt pictures with out permission, and the like.

    i.e. Idiots doing things and ruin the fun for the rest of the world.

    If it's jailbroken there is a cydia app "nocamsound" that disables the sound or if you have your headphone plugged in I believe the sound plays over them instead of the speaker.

    Just ssh into the camera app, replace the camera sounds with silent ones. You can try just deleting or appending the file name with a _ or something so the app can't find it when it goes to reference it, but from memory it caused my phone (Japanese 3GS) to freeze.


    edit: Just found and attached the files I modified if you wanted to do it that way. Leave the originals on the phone and just append something to the filename so that you can change them back to the original if you need to. NB: It's actually the phone's UI audio folder you ssh into, NOT the actual camera app folder.
