Re: front Facing camera on Samsung mesmerize DISABLED on us ccellular !

As far as I know, the Sprint Epic is the only U.S. Galaxy S with a front camera. I checked the Samsung manual and other sites that list specs, and none of them mention a front camera on the Mesmerize. You may be confusing the light sensors on the front with a camera?

I too have the Mesmerize and noticed the front facing camera. I tried downloading other camera apps that might allow using it, but didn't seem to find anything. There is a proximity sensor but I'm pretty sure there is also a camera. Looks EXACTLY like one! Maybe this will be enabled with Froyo?

There is NO camera on the Mesmerize. I have one... It is a light sensor.
