I still cant wrap my head around the fact that even at BB mobile dept employee showed you 2 iphones & they both had the rattle and yellow tint. I rem seeing a post recently (maybe in this thread) about the yellowish tint is because of 2 different screen availibility manfucture wise (i think it was IrishRose that posted it) but WTF is the camera rattle actually from ??? and why would some rattle and some not.......
edit: yep - i just checked it was IrishRose's post about the LG(cooler) & Samsung(warmer) info on the screens Thx Rose !!

This is weird, I've had my iP4 for almost 2 years now and never noticed a rattle until I read this thread. I just put it to my ear and shook it and sure enough there is a very quiet rattle. I would never have noticed this without deliberately looking for it. My guess would be its the vibrate motor, it needs play to function. I've completely disassembled my daughters' iP4 and that motor was the only part that had moving parts, everything else was tightly packed in and screwed down.

You guys have my OCD running in high gear now. After reading the posts, I checked my iPhone 4s for a rattle and I could hear it. Never heard it before. Sounds like it is coming from somewhere near the top of the phone. Maybe the camera ???? I hope I can sleep tonight........LOL. It is killing me just wondering what it might be causing the rattle.

Never heard a rattle in my 4s, but I've had an OtterBox Defender case on it since I got it. Odd that y'all other posters had this issue. I'd be pissed if my (then) brand new iPhone 4s had a rattle or yellow tint out of the box like Blink was experiencing. Wife would feel the same (and she has minor OCD)!

if you want to see for yourself simply turn on your camera and let it auto focus on something close, then tap on the back near the camera lens. the rattle stops. it did for me anyways
