Ordered Samsung S3 from FreedomPop
Camera doesn't work; after initiating Camera App I get "Warning"
"Camera failed"
Downloading alternative apps for camera use got no result.

Plenty of people have had problems with FP's refurbs in the past.

Did you try factory resetting the phone?

After ordering a deal immediately delete your deal alert. You got your item; you don't want it shipped with a side of remorse.

If it's new to you I would contact FP Customer support and arrange a replacement one.

I'd try factory reset too. That's the very first thing I do when I get a used phone. Don't forget to clear cache and whatnot while you're at it.

got same problem with s5, solved by reinstall battery.

but i did a factory reset before doing that Frown

the site i chose, all the way to solution 6, didn't mention battery, only restart, i think they stole from other site, but half ass the solution, it should be "turn off, remove battery,sim,sd", i think the design doesn't cut off power for camera, so it can't do a true power reset even factory reset.

Drunk driving on the sea to find deals.
