    One more to add to the list... my faith in Apple is being tested! My issue started when I tried to rotate the camera lens. It's been locked up ever since. I've done a reboot and a restore, no difference.

    My new iPhone 4 with the same issue, camera fezzes. Everything I tried doesn't help, disappointed and no luck. I call to Apple and they will ship a new one to me since I don't have Apple store nearby, and I only need to drop off the defective iPhone 4 to any UPS store return to Apple. Apple's Service did great even though iPhone is too suck.

    Not sure whether there is a correlation but my wife installed torch4i-phone and now has same camera freeze problem. Interestingly the torch4i-phone app stopped working when the camera froze. Uninstalled the app and revolted but still no joy.

    My new iPhone 4 had two working cameras for two weeks. Then neither would operate. Tried many tricks including "restore to factory settings" but nothing worked.

    Finally, turned it off and left it off overnight then turned it on. That did it! Although, I'm obviously wary that it could reoccur at any time.

    My iPhone 4 camera just started freezing, the app shuts down and it seems to not play well with facebook and twitter. I'm trying the "shut the unit off for 10 minutes" suggestion but I'm not hopeful. Gorilla Cam used to have the same effect on my 3G, which makes me suspect it's a software or firmware issue.

    Turning it off for 10 minutes ended up fixing my problem. I don't know if it made any difference but I restarted it by plugging it into my MacBook. I now have an iCal reminder to do it once a week.

    I decided to splurge and buy iphone 4s for my wife and myself. I was very disappointed, because the same day, I took 5 photos and then the camera stopped working. Stuck on the iris. The telephone reception was bad to start with as well, but it seemed to improve. I am a little leery of the "Designed in California, Assembled in China" on the back of the thing. So where were the parts made? They don't mention that. Sounds like third party lowest bidder type stuff. Maybe not the best route.
    I hope Apple/Bell Mobility are going to give me product support, in any case I have to spend 3 hours dealing with it because I don't live right next to an Apple store or even the Bell Mobility outlet.
    I've read a lot of posts regarding this issue, and I feel the same way. Come on Apple. We all know you have the ability to get it right, so do it.

    I got hold of Apple, they offered to sell me a $70 Apple care plan after 3 days so that I had a warranty. When I said no, it was only 2 days old, they wanted $30 for quick replacement. After a little more reminders that the phone was only 2 days old they sent a new one to me with no fees via UPS, came today and works good. I am a happy camper. Sure is a neat gadget.

    I had the same problem, and the first time I tried to restore, it did not fix it. Then I tried restoring it to a previous backup of my phone (I had about 4 different backups), and the camera works again. Hope this helps.

    I had this problem while up north (I live in Florida). It would be slow starting up and then seem to never get past the shutter. Later when inside it would start to work. Works fine here in Florida but then the temperature is in the 60s to 70s, not the 30s.

    For me, it appears that the camera is sensitive to cold. The spec is 32 deg F, but it seems to be failing above that. I put it in a bag (to keep moisture out) and put it in the refrigerator (which is usually around 40 deg F) and after a few minutes it seemed to act funny. I'll try it later and see if I can duplicate the problem.
