How to: Turn off Camera shutter Sounds in Nokia Asha 310

Previously, I wrote about doing the same with the Asha 311. Now luckily, I got hands on an Asha 310 phone, so thought I should write this guide as well to help all those who’re frustrated with the camera shutter sounds which the phone makes when clicking a picture. Just to let you know, Nokia implemented this restriction so that you can’t take picture of the next person without him/her noticing the click. So please don’t attempt clicking someone without his/her permission as this hinders with the privacy of the others.

This article is only important if you are from a region where the option is not provided. Look into your camera settings page and continue only if you don’t see an option as shown in the picture below.

Turning of the Camera Shutter Sounds in Asha 310 (might work on 308 aswell)

PS: This was only tried and tested on an Asha 310. However, there’s a good chance that this will work on Asha 308 as well being there’s a little difference between the software of these phones.

The job is easily achievable as all you need to do is to restore a phone backup file. Although it will only play with the settings of the phone and reset most of them to default, I’ll still recommend you to create another full backup of your phone which you can restore in case there is a problem.

  1. Download the backup file (named Camera Sounds 310) from here.
  2. If you downloaded it on your PC then transfer it to your phone. If it was downloaded on the phone itself, move to the next step.
  3. Browse through files to the folder where you copied this backup file and tap on it. The phone will ask you to confirm the restore from backup. Tap on continue
  4. The phone will restart and you’re done. You’ll start seeing an option on the camera settings page to turn the sounds On or Off.
Keep this backup file handy as you’ll be needed to repeat the steps in case you factory reset your phone.

Did this work for you? How were the results after the restore? Let us know in the comments section below 🙂
