    I turn the camera on and put my fingure over the lense and I get a
    bunch of what I think is digital noise, I expect it to be black.

    What else would you expect? It's a really cheap little CMOS
    CCD. Be happy that it's usable at all. ;-)

    Why are you putting your finger over the lense in the first place? You
    really shouldn't touch the lens of any camera with your fingers.

    I wanted to take a totaly black picture to use as wallpaper to see if
    it made the cotrast any better.

    Instead of your finger, try taking a picture of a completely black surface.
    Or simply take a pic in complete pitch black dark with brightness turned all
    the way down and ISO set to the lowest level.

    Then you expect too much of a cheap camera phone. :)

    Actually, CCDs that will produce total pitch blacks are extremely rare,
    and often happens with the help of sophisticated software to filter out
    noise. If you want a CCD that does pitch black, the camera is going to
    cost several thousands of dollars. Below that, and the CCD will always
    give a little bit of noise, or will at the very least exhibit hot
    pixels. Morseo on camera phones, where the camera is a secondary
    function. Compound this with the fact that end users expect cell phones
    to be cheap, and the end result is that most cell manufactures cut a
    deal with CCD makers to get their rejects; the CCDs that are marginally
    acceptable in performance.

    It's probably the noise of the camera jacking its brightness all the way up
    to maximum.
