So.. Taking it apart and trying to fix it seems to be the only way for now.
Bummer, that there is no analytic software for purposes like this, yet.

It's soldered in place. Bad contacts then.

As far as a way of checking & knowing if it's broken u can try *#*#7378423#*#* to enter service menu from phone dialer. At least that's the service menu number for r800i, I think Verizon's r800x was different number. You can check almost all parts of the phone But I don't remember if front & rear camera had an option.

I punch in that number, and at the very last digit (*) it erases everyting I just typed, but doesn't go to a service menu. Might be an ICS beta thing though..

Hi! I've been having some issues like the ones previously described (camera cannot connect, etc): most of the time the front camera doesn't work and when it actually does the image quality is awful. I tried using what you said to access service menu ( *#*#7378423#*#*) and it worked. It does have a rear & front camera option. Main camera works just fine. However, when I try to test the front camera it doesn't work. Is there any way to fix this like reinstalling the camera apk?

If so, where can I get the camera apk?

you would need the service menu apk in /system/app for the service menu to work
