You have to have the phone in silent mode, unless you're willing to do some "hackery", to get rid of the sound. If you are, get back to me and I'll find you the appropriate information :).

I have try that but it still makes the sound because the phone goes from low to vibrate, their is no silent mode on this sophisticated phone

There is you just have to disable vibrate in the settings menu, then it'll go straight from loud to true silent mode, skipping vibrate all together.

It's stupid and annoying I know, HTCs have all three modes, as does stock ICS. It's a TouchWiz thing AFAIK.

Anyway, do you want to try proper silent mode or are you going to venture into the world of Android development :p?

EDIT: I forgot to say, the shutter sound only disappears in silent mode on newer firmware versions (KG1 and above, I think), if it doesn't work for you try updating your phone's firmware via Kies :).

Yes, you can flash a non-network branded update but we're going to venture into warranty losing (though it's possible to get it back quite easily) territory, is that ok with you? Also, may I ask which firmware version you're currently running?

If you wan't to carry on follow these instructions, if not you've been very pleasant to speak to and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year :).

Here goes:

1) visit http://www.multiupload.com/7FKGH0Y68X and download the firmware file (that link is perfectly safe, it's directly copied from XDA).

2) visit http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1075278 this is the thread on XDA telling you exactly how to install updated firmware versions, the one I linked you to is the newest totally stable version.

3) Ask me if you have any issues, you'll get a quicker answer than asking over on XDA :).
