    Does anyone know of a way to completely disable the camera button (Boom Key) on the right side of the phone? Can it be removed? It is in the absolute worst place and is almost impossible to not hit at at some point throughout the day. You can't even pick the phone up without making sure you don't hit the button. I know there is an option for"prevent accidental camera launch when the device is locked", which is hit or miss, but that only applies to when the phone is locked.

    Other than this i love the phone.

    Unfortunately, I don't think there is an option to fully disable the camera button. That's a limitation with the operating system. You could probably find a way to do it by hacking the registry on the phone or something like that. But I don't think it's wise to mess around that much.

    I had the same issue at first. Now I'm used to it.
    No, you can't disable it as far as I know. I tried.

    My issue is Cortana randomly opening up and talking. It happens way to often!

    I just wish we had the option to remap buttons.

    I've attached the settings that need to be changed in your camera setting. This will at least help when the lock screen is on to prevent accidental camera activation.
