    Default Does your iPhone rattle?

    I just noticed that I seem to have some sort of rattle on my new VZW iPhone. When shaken side ways, I can hear faint rattling coming from the camera area. I dont hear anything if the phone is shook front to back(screen going back and forth) but when you shake it sideways. I can also hear when tapping on the camera slightly.

    Anyone else in the same boat as me? People here My VZW iPhone Rattles - MacRumors Forums seem to think its the autofocus on the camera.

    No rattle for me

    a better question: Why are you shaking your phone side to side and listening for noises?

    My daughter's doesn't rattle. I would find that rather disturbing if it did. I think I would take to a Genius Bar and ask them what gives.

    I'm not even going to try to shake it, it might rattle something loose. LOL!

    I ran into people at the android forums who mentioned that a rattle could be from the accelerometer. No of them had a problem with their phone working properly, but it was annoying knowing there was a rattle with their phone.

    A Genius might replace it for you and since you are within your 30-days of receiving the equipment, this is your best chance of getting it replaced. After 30 days, they may not be so likely to do it for you. Just my opinion...

    After reading the thread on MacRumors, I've come to the conclusion that a large number of them are morons. Why would we say it doesn't rattle if it does? That's dumb. And someone even said "Do babies rattle? Maybe we should shake them too." Wow, since when do babies rattle? I don't think babies have any loose parts.

    Every iPhone has a slight rattle from the camera from tapping the phone. I havent seen one yet that doesnt. But it doesnt rattle when shaking. My wifes Att i4 had a rattle from inside the lock button while mine didnt. Apple Genius bar gave her a brand new one

    I'm not really going to worry about it, most electronics have some type of rattle if you shake them. My phone has a rattle(thanks for bringing it my attention though...) but after I held down my power button, it didn't. I'm going to chalk it up to my power button being pressed after so many times.

    I have it too. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Curious-those that rattle, did your iPhone ship with 4.2.5 and you had to update to 4.2.6, or did it ship with 4.2.6?

    Mine came with 4.2.5

    Mine has no rattle (much like a baby, but the people on MacRumors don't know that) and it came with 4.2.6.
