    I'm a bit concerned that my iPhone 4 might be slightly broken due to the poorly packed shipping box it came in yesterday.

    When I tap the top of the phone against my hand, there's a rattling noise. The bottom is perfectly sound, but the top rattles.

    Can other people try this and see if maybe it's just the LED rattling or something?

    The weird thing is, the screen must be pointing up when you tap it against your hand/palm. If the screen is pointed down, there's no sound...

    Just need to know if I need to go in for an exchange.

    Mine does this too. It's the metal buttons on the side.

    I wonder why the noise isn't present if you flip the phone (screen down) and tap it on your palm...

    Hopefully more people can chime in, to see if it's a widespread problem.
    I might still go in to exchange it in a month or so, if this is actually a "problem".

    Yes, my iPhone 4 rattles just like this. If I tap the top on the back it rattles, also when I set it down. Is this normal?

    This has been discussed here before. Pretty much every iphone4 does this. Non-issue.
