new iphone 6. haven't been able to use the camera at all. Usually has a black screen and the icons. The icons won't work. Sometimes it will have a blury pic instead of a black screen but still won't let me do anything.

Hi speedphreake!

I apologize for the inconvenience, let's see what's causing the problem! When did the problem begin? Has your phone been exposed to any physical/water damage?

We are on the case, speedphreake. I know I use my phone camera for everything. Is there anything that maybe covering the camera lens? Front facing camera? Back? Both?

there is nothing covering the lenses. sometimes the rear camera seems to work, until you try and take a pic. then it freezes. if the front camera is used it freezes right away and you can't even get beck to the rear camera. I think the phone is just defective and needs to be replaced.
