    Ok when i do videos there r no problems

    however after i take a photo using the "tap 2 focus" feature, the shutter closes and is followed by an annoying high pitched whine. i know that ppl have complained of this high pitch whine coming out when they r filming videos... but what about immediately after taking photos?

    if ur reading this thread can u try taking a photo and tell me if u hear any kind of high pitch noise right afterwards?

    Yes. I wrote in that thread that I hear it after taking a picture. It doesn't annoy me, because it only lasts for a couple of seconds and I only hear it in a quiet room.

    are u sure? listen closely....put it very close to ur ear. and are u in a very quiet room?

    it would only make sense that this is affecting every1s phones since its most likely a software issue

    ummm, yes i'm sure. in fact i'm 100% positive. it doesn't happen. i listened closely. there are no sounds in this room apart from my breathing and and a silent iphone 3g s that nearly deafened me when it made the shutter sound so close to my ear.

    can i go now please?

    I hear a faint high pitch sound but it isn't loud enough for me to hear it without it right next to my ear.

    Why would you be putting it that close to your ear anyways?

    This is an established fault. If you are young/have excellent hearing, you will hear a high pitched noise after sounds played by the iPhone. As you age, your ability to hear this high pitch is lost.

    sometimes (probably about half the time) at night after i get a text (even if my phone is on silent) i will hear a high pitched buzz.

    Certain sounds cause that to happen. It's a well known issue in the community. Not everyone can hear it and of course they assume if they can't hear something then it's not there. Rest assured, it happens. Generally any phone activity noise that ends with a higher frequency will cause it.

    I posted in the other thread that I couldn't hear it,but now that I dothe camera thing I can, although in a perfectly quiet room I have to hold the speaker up to my ear so it doesn't really bother me.

    It's also not a universal issue. I can hear clean up to 23khz and I don't get anything from the phone after taking photos.
