    I think putting black tape over the camera should do. Taking out the camera is the fastest way to voided warranty-Ville as well as, well, loads of other hardware issues. But thats just my opinion

    Do you have a SIM based service?

    ​Just get a GSM phone without a camera and swap the SIM in that for work.

    I've worked security at facilities that have this policy - i.e.: Homeland Security Port designated locations.

    ​Tape over the lens is not acceptable and would lead to confiscation of the item at the entry point.

    Yea... I suggest you get a random phone without camera. Just swap SIMs or better still, use a separate SIM when you are not in your company.

    When you need the camera, or other features, just swap it back into the phone.

    What Guy??? It's an unregistered guest question. There are millions of users on the Mobile Nations forums asking these questions... It is not just one individual.

    Oh. In that case, there's no hope.

    Hmm. I didn't know that. I thought 'Windows Central Question' was someone's registered name. My mistake. But the reason why I said that was whenever I saw a question from 'Windows Central Question' most of the time it seemed like a joke to me, the questions were quite silly. But anyway sorry for going off topic. Carry on guys. I'm outta here. Peace.

    ​Yeah... Sometimes it does get a bit silly.

    That depends on the design of the phone, the camera might be easily removed, but I wont know without checking a teardown.

    So if its removed, I hope the phone won't miss the camera. Its possible the phone will complain, but I dont think so.

    I remember there being a camera-less version of the Handspring/Palm Treo 600 just for this situation. My dad once had a Palm m500 where they required reflective tape over the IR port.

    but either way you'll have to open the phone, and if you're comfortable with that, worth a try.

    But I'd consider getting a random throwaway camera-less phone for work too. (or one that is easier to butcher)
