I was wondering the same thing, but I don't think this can be done. I just had to exchange mine because the camera button was so sensitive that it would take pictures in my pocket as I was walking. The new phone does not have this problem, but is still easy to accidently take a picture when holding the phone. Is there any way that SE could possible offer a software update that would allow us to lock the camera? If so, how would we get the new software on our phones? I still love the phone's form and function though (other than the camera)!
