I´ve been given a smartphone

Its got this WhatsApp on/in it, I need to put my mugshot on there I think, how do I turn the front camera on?
I´ve looked on the internet, it tells me all sorts of stuff, but not how to change from the back to front camera.
Can anyone help me please, its a Huawei Ascend Y330 phone.

There should be a rectangle at the top of the camera screen with a couple of semi circular arrows round it, click that area and it should change from front/rear.

This video might help.

You Tube normally has a series of 'How To's' but I can't see a series on your camera....however I searched for 'Camera on etc and there are a few answers!

I don´t seem to have the same camera as shown on any of the video´s I have seen so far.

Here is what I have, no icon as you describe Mike.

Jan, press the Camera icon on the screen you have shown and then you should be presented with the camera screen, the rectangle I mentioned should then be at the top of that screen.

What happens if you click the little camera at the top left of the screen?

It doesn’t mention a front camera and I wonder if it has one?

It´s got the little hole top right, I assume thats the camera. When I spoke to my friend on skype I saw my face on the screen at the bottom and hers on the full screen.
She gave me the camera after she´d used it for over a year so I´ll have to ask her, I hadn´t even thought of it until today.
Thank you for trying.
