    Every time I tap on back top right corner where the camera is I here this annoying sound like there is something in the iphone body. Also Siri isn't working.

    I am wondering if anyone is having the same issue as me? Anyone have any other problems with their new phone?

    I just tapped mine there too. It does sound like something is rather loose or something.

    My Calendar totally seems to be not working, and Siri hasn't worked reliably since early today. I'm thinking this thing may be going back.

    The sound by the camera is normal. The iPhone 4 does this as well.

    Siri probably won't work right for a week or so until they can get the servers to meet the demand. Right now it's just seeing how popular it will be and what type of server support it will need.

    I have the same thing going on with mine. I guess some it's just more audible on some iPhones than others. It's very noticeable on mine.

    The Calendar is totally nonfunctional on mine. I am starting to not really like this phone much.

    Maybe try starting fresh? Do a restore? I haven't heard much about people having an issue with the calendar.

    The camera is normal. People don't seem to realize Siri is server side. It's all stored on apples servers. It's not working due to the immensity of peoria trying to use it. Please give it a day or two before saying the phone is going back.

    Has anyone else had connectablility problems with their new iPhone 4s? My wife and both got one today and we keep getting disconnected from the server. From weather to Siri, to email and internet I keep getting a warning stating that there is no service. I have never had this issue before with my previous iPhone. Also, my home button seems to react at least a 1-2 seconds slower than it should. Any advice, tips, or anyone else having problems? It has been off and on all day so I am not sure.

    There is no camera problem. That sound is the focus on the camera. Every phone with a decent camera does it.

    Exactly. I noticed this as well. I believe people will drag this way out of proportion. Its really not that big of a deal. The iPhone 4 did it as well.

    What this guy said. ALL phones with a decent camera have a focus near the lens that makes this noise.

    Yeah it's not an issue. Everything on the phone isn't crazy glued to something else, and the focus is one of those things. And as far as network issues, it may just be related to location, because I haven't had any yet whatsoever. *knocks on wood* it'll resolve itself I'm sure, as congestion and constant usage dies down

    So here is the scoop I got from my local Verizon retail store about the camera rattle noise. Like Jeremy said, it is completely normal. The retail rep was an iPhone fanatic (like most of us here) and noticed his white 32GB made the same rattle when he got it yesterday. Anyways, he exchanged mine for a brand new one for the heck of it & it still has the rattle, just slightly less. Again, it has to do with the autofocus & the new camera setup. So don't worry!

    Mine does it too, and I know my iPhone4 didn't do it. But since it only happens when I tap the phone I am going to leave it unless something gets louder, worse, or whatever.

    EVERY phone does it. Trust me. Next time you are at the Apple store test every single phone on display and every single one will rattle like that.

    A true iPhone "fanatic" would know that the rattle actually comes from the power button. Try squeezing the power button and shaking or tapping it, I bet you wont hear a rattle.

    Then you must not be a "fanatic". :o It is related to the camera.
