Default Camera stopped working on my tour!!

Please Login to Remove!

So I just tried to use the camera on my tour and I got this message. "Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again."

I don't know how to see what other apps are running, but I went into anything I thought might be open and closed it out. I also turned the phone off and back on and I am still getting this message every time I try to use the camera.

Help! What is going on?

Okay so after messing with this thing for like 30 minutes... and even after shutting it down. I went into pandora and then shut down pandora and now the camera works. Maybe pandora was running in the background because I didnt shut it down properly last time I used it?

Shouldn't turning off the phone stop all applications? Is there a proper way to totally shut the device down?

Battery pull damn near fixes all. I installed quick pull lite and have it simulate a battery pull every morning.
I also read recently that if you just hit the back button to close a program it stays running in the background using memory.
You need to hit the BB button and close the app correctly.
