    The commercials for Windows Phone 7 sometimes tout the feature of waking your phone up with the camera button to take a quick photo. My phone never wakes up quickly when I try this. Only about 1 in ten times does it wake at all. I then have to go ahead and wake it normally and flick the lock screen out of the way, then press the camera button. Anyone else have this issue?

    Works fine for me. You do have it set to wakeup on press in Settings/Camera, right?

    Yeah, it is set to wake on camera. Only works about 1 in 10 times. I hardly try anymore. It is just quicker to wake the phone normally and then activate the camera.
