Received my iPhone 4S via UPS this afternoon. When I took it out of the box, I noticed that there was a very noticeable "wiggle" sounds coming directly from the camera area. On my previous iPhone 4's, some of the buttons were loose that would cause the sound, but all are very solid on my 4S. I even put moderate pressure on all of them and the "wiggle" sound still emanated from the camera area. It is especially prominent when I set the phone down camera end first on any surface, even my couch.
Has anyone else noticed this??
My previous Verizon iPhone didn't do this & my AT&T iPhone 4's didn't make this noise either. I'm thinking it really got bumped during shipping or something and now something is loose inside.
Also, obviously I ordered through VerizonWireless.com, but could I go to a local corporate Verizon store and would they exchange it there?? Or can I only do it through VZW.com or AppleCare?
I still have my original receipt & paperwork.
Thank you for any input

I also have a Black 32GB and mine does this as well. It doesn't bother me though. I mean are you going to shake the phone? I think ALL phones have this and some people will report and say they don't when they do. Its just people aren't OCD enough to notice it lol. I'm very OCD and noticed this right away.

Yes Jeremy is right. I had a thread going last year about this when the 4 came out. I had it replaced (because of a broken speaker) but my replacement had the same noise. It is normal. I think the conclusion is, it's the zoom. That's why the 3 series didn't have this noise.
