How do I turn on the camera shutter sound?

Hello!  I'm loving the new S7 but for a few snags.  I'm one of the few, apparently, who *like* having the camera shutter sound ON.  Otherwise, I can't tell if it actually took a pic or not - very annoying for me.  I know there are settings, also in the camera 'app', to turn on/off shutter sound - mine is set to ON.  Volume is up, phone makes other sounds, alarms, etc - no shutter sound.  Ideas?  Thanks!

When you set the phone up did you use a backup or NFC transfer. I noticed that when people do there are weird quirks. You'll see things on other forums as well. A Factory reset and setup as a new device seems to always fix the problems.

Thanks for your lightning fast response!  OK - I can try a factory reset.  What's the best way to back up stuff so I can add it back after a reset?  I would like to keep text history, call logs, etc, in addition to Contacts and photos...

We know how important it is to save all your information and have the features work properly for you, suzbwise. Before performing a Factory Data Reset you can save everything on your phone by using our Verizon Cloud app http://vz.to/1WAG1nc

By the way - I used an adapter to connect my phones with the USB cable and transferred "everything" that way.  Of note - my contacts came over, but only 1 image (everyone else was back to the icon), no custom notification sounds (I have individual text alerts for each family member and co-worker); the wallpapers I downloaded came over, but not the sounds - just got them again, no big deal.  Do you think a direct transfer would mess up the built-in camera shutter sound?

Yes I think it did. I actually tested this out.

1. Wired connection i kept getting errors and crashes with my DND settings. I also lost fast charging options, and

2.  When I did the NFC transfer I had trouble with contacts, DND, and wifi.

3.  When I did everything from scratch I have yet to run into problems.
