1) Get into the "Test mode" menu: *#8999*8378# (the source had it wrong. See bottom second source)
2) [2] for H/W Test
3) [2] for Audio Settings
4) [1] for Rx Path (recieve path - I guess, anything to the User.)
5) [9] for Melody gain
6) [1] for Normal
7) Use [c] and the number to set "Vol. 1" to 0 (default:10). [OK] or [...Save] to continue.
8) Same thing; Set "Vol. 2" to 0 (default:14)
9) Same thing; Set "Vol. 3" to 0 (default:19)
10) Same thing; Set "Vol. 4" to 0 (default:24) - This is the important one. The camera shutter is set on this volume.
11) If desired, you can set "Vol. 5" to 0 as well. ::shrugs:: (default:30)

My settings will be (0, 10, 20, 0, 31). 31 is the max: volume is modded (%) by 32, so 32=0.

Next modification:
Turning off the goddamned startup/turn on sound...

For the record, here's the menu breakdown and default (I think. Some may be different since I've already played with the normal user accessable settings) values for the t319, t-mobile to go phone: ("|" = new line)

Apparently the shutter-sound requirement is due to privacy law: "Anyway, this is an easy way to stick it to the lame-o nanny state European/Asian countries that ruined it for us all with their over-reaching "privacy" laws that mandated the shutter click." - source 1.

Power on/off sound options are there in the normal user menu. Doh. ^^;;

codes: (source: http://www.3g.co.uk/3GForum/archive/index.php/t-25686.html, it's for another phone, but it works for this one too.)
*#7465625# = Check Locks (7465625=pinlock. Prepend with * to enable, # to disable. Code.. apparently has to be read off using a computer. :P Spiffy though.)
*7465625*638*Code# = Enables Network Lock (638=net)
#7465625*638*Code# = Disables Network Lock
*7465625*782*Code# = Enables Subset Lock (782=sub)
#7465625*782*Code# = Disables Subset Lock

W00t. Samsung t319 unlocked!

Took me, oh, 5-7 hours of searching, button mashing, and amused playing around.

In the end, it turned out, I had to:
1) Insert a SIM card from Taiwan. Saw "Wrong card" on the screen.
2) Enter *PINLOCK*NET*00000000*00000000# (translates to *7465625*638*00000000*00000000#). You have now enabled the Network lock using the password '00000000'. The breakdown of the command is essentially
* = enable
PINLOCK = the locking options
* = seperator
NET = What we're locking/unlocking]
* = seperator
00000000 = password. Must be 8 characters long? I don't know.
* = seperator
00000000 = confirm password
# = End of command
3) Enter #PINLOCK*NET*00000000#. Or #7465625*638*00000000#. # at the start stands for disable.
4) Now use *#PINLOCK# (*#7465625#) to open the "Interrogate" menu. Network lock should show "inactive".
If there's any other locks active, use the list on my previous post to set them to inactive. [http://ibneko.livejournal.com/598193.html#cutid2]

I want to say this might work for most Samsung phones. Without more phones, it's hard to say. Heh, yes, I could go around and test it on phones in the stores. Hmmm. May be a good way to get myself kicked out.

Now I want some way to load non-T-mobile branded firmware. I really dislike that t-zones soft-button. And there's no way to quickly get to my recent calls. :P
