Has your iPhone camera left you? Vanished without a trace? Can’t imagine where it went?
Did you just configure Microsoft Exchange for your iPhone? I thought so.
If you are tying into an Exchange server that isn’t setup to specifically allow the phone, the camera app simply disappears. If you happen to know your Exchange Admin, give him a ring. Exchange 2007 has active sync policies, one of which is to disallow the camera. Hopefully they’ll see clear to enabling it for you.
But what if you aren’t actually using an Exchange server? If you are like me, you are using the Exchange feature on the iPhone get take advantage of push email and calendar service from Gmail and/or Google Apps.
The simple answer is to disable the SSL protocol in that account. Less secure, probably, but can you really live without that camera on your phone? I didn’t think so. Here’s where to look:
Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > (click on your Exchange account) > Account Info > (toogle “Use SSL” off)
Wasn’t that easy?
