I see that it's been a big debate on whether on not gps can disable on camera of galaxy s. Well i have gps disabled from the dropdown menu but did notice that there was a gps icon flashing while taking pics. I called my mobile carrier and the tech told me how to disable it. Well there is no way to disable it unless you're a techy and know how to do it. Your mobile carriers aren't going to tell you how to and even if they say that they did and it has been done. That's a complete lie. So after disabling the gps on my cam i took some pictures and noticed that the file name for the pictures had the location i was at.

So if there's a techy that's out there and really know how to disable this then please let me know or i'll just get rid of the cam feature all together Happy  Lips Sealed

Actually, i just looked at the details of all my photos (taken outside - sky clearly visible for perfect gps reception).
They all say location/latitude/longitude unknown.
Downloaded the pics to make sure, properties also does not show location.

Not a tech, just pressed the disable button.

How about disabling GPS altogether (save battery too) ? Just place the Power Control widget on your home screen and turn it off using the middle button, satellite icon. Only turn it on just before using Maps/Navigation.
That way, the gps icon will not flash during camera operation or any other operation.
