A friend of mine bought a new iphone 5 just now. We tried to test some of its features like camera, wifi ... without inserting a sim card. We found that Iphone 5 camera is not working without inserting a sim card. Is it essential to insert a sim card for the camera to start?
VMAn1982, thank you for sharing. This resolved the issue of my camera flash not working. It was worth the $0.99. I did not want to take my phone to Verizon and get a replacement. Think of all the hassle that involves!
