    I have a Verizon LG vx5200. My problem is that the camera button gets bumped really easily when it's in my pocket. When it's in camera mode, it puts the camera feed on the screen, running down my battery like crazy. To make matters worse, whenever the camera button gets bumped again, it takes a picture, so my phone's memory is full of black images - pictures of the inside of my pocket. So my question is, can I disable the camera button on the side of my cell phone? I really never use the camera feature, and if I did, I could easily activate it through the menu. I've searched high and low through the menu options, but I haven't found a way to do it.
