Thanks for that thread! I asked it in another thread in this forum even after the unboxing of my device. It's coming from the upper right side and the sleep button doesnt change anything with me at all. Still have that voice.
It doesnt effect anything but at least knowing there is something like that can be enough for feeling uncomfortable about the shiny new device.. According to the answers from you guys, I'll decide if it would be worth to show to a genius or maybe change it..

ive had this on all 3 iphone 4/4s i had, in fact, when i got my iphone 5 in shipment yesterday, the first thing i checked was for the rattle LOL.
but yes, it's by the camera, i was told..my 5th time actually that it's the vibration motor. i went to the apple store anyways, just to stock up on some lightning cables first 2 times i heard the rattle i freaked out too. then i just accepted that it was the vibrate moto

Also, reading back, I suspect my original issue was a lose battery as it was pretty loud.

It is the camera. The camera is held in by magnets. When it is in autofocus mode (which it is in usually) it will rattle if tapped by the camera lens.
Use your camera function on autofocus mode.
Tap by the camera while it is out of focus or trying to focus. It will make a rattling noise.
Now tap it when it is focused on something. That rattle will go away.
This is part of an advanced camera system that can't be done any other way as of yet in such a tiny platform. It is the most advanced technology the world has at this point for a mobile phone camera.
Be grateful. If it all works, IT's FINE.
There is nothing wrong.

I think it's funny that someone actually told them they had a loose battery, considering 99.999999% of the time when something is reported as wrong and can be replicated in the store, they simply take the "broken" iPhone and give them a new one, without looking at it with any legitimacy.
