    The problem with mine is that I hate literally hit anywhere, by hit I mean a light tap, and the the camera component will rattle. If I tap near the camera it's fairly loud. A lot louder than it was on my 4S and 4. But oh well. I'm content I guess.
    There is nothing from stopping you going back say in 2 months once things calm down.

    Thats what I planned on doing. The Genius said he made a note of it on my account. So, I assume I'm still good for an exchange since he told me I could exchange it if I wanted.

    Showed up at Apple Store Munich today for showing that rattle.. He showed it to some other colleagues too.. All of them said it's the first time they're having that kind of issue.. Actually I didn't want to change my phone at first. Cause I didn't have any other problems and you can't even know that the new device would be %100 fine. But cause of they are hearing that problem for the first time, I didnt want to risk it and changed the device immediately there.

    I tested it there and there is no rattle in the new device. But when I'm back I realized that there is a small scratch (ironic grey) on the right corner of the device. And the home button is a little bit strange.. I don't know how to describe it but it feels a little bit softer when I click on it. Maybe the previous device's was so hard to click that's why I can't decide if that's an issue.

    Because of Apple, we're exactly looking for the tiniest issues on any devices!! )

    is your rattle as bad as this one?

    might be a loose battery. the video tells you how to fix it; took me about 5 seconds to fix mine.

    Mine does not rattle at all - at least not that I can hear... and it came free of scratches and scuffs, too.

    Just FYI, talked to Apple and they told me to go to AT&T and they would exchange it with no problems. AT&T of course refused. Apple got back with me and they are shipping me a brand new phone and then I have to ship mine back to them. Hopefully this new one doesn't have a rattle and is free of scuffs and scratches. I'm really impressed with Apple taking such good care of me. Apple didn't appear to be familiar with the problem, but I don't know. The little rattle has been annoying me so I'm super thankful they are willing to exchange it. Mine is definitely a piece up by the camera. Now fingers crossed the new one doesn't rattle as well!

    I got a replacement from Apple today and it does the same thing...same "rattle" issue when you tap the upper half of the phone near the camera. Disappointing, but what can you do?

    Why Apple would tell you to go to AT&T is beyond me. They know that AT&T would direct you right back to them. Either way, glad they are taking care of you. The new one they sent me last week didn't do it so good luck.

    If you tap on it, that's normal and they all will do it. It shouldn't be doing it with a simple shake.

    Due to proximity sensor issues, I've had a number of 4's and two 4s's...never a rattle.

    Mine does it with a simple shake. But I read that's normal as the camera has more lens or something.

    It very well be "normal" but there are some out there that do not rattle unless you tap on it. (So tapping it is normal. Has been since the 3G) I swapped mine out and my new one does not do it.

    I was just at the AT&T store and the black one on display rattled just like mine when barely shaken and tapped. I might call Apple up to see what's up. One rattled from a very loose sleep wake button.

    I'd just hate to exchange and get one with a real problem. Seems like half rattle and half don't.

    Jeremy, how bad was your first one?

    Bad enough to drive me crazy. I noticed it just by lift the phone to my ear to answer a call 10 minutes after I got it. I could turn the phone over gently and hear it. New one is silent unless you tap on the back by the camera which like I've mentioned before is completely normal regardless what others may think.

    Well I guess mine's normal then. Haha. It just annoys me that I hear it a bit when I sit my phone down on a table or something.

    Yeah that's exactly what mine is doing. Just called up Apple and they are sending me a beans new one. This isn't really a rattle, yet more of a loose piece inside the camera lens. Rattling is normal, not a loose piece moving when I lift it to my ear.

    They they set a side a few brand new iPhones during every launch for reasons such as damaged during transit or DOA.

    Now your going to think I'm nuts. I'm actually going to call Apple up tomorrow morning and tell them to cancel it. This iPhone 5 is horrible. The form factor is awful. I hate where they moved the headphone jack. My signal is way worse. Its way too light and thin. It doesn't feel like a quality premium product like the 4S did.

    It even feels the exact same as the 4S running iOS 6. I hate the phone. Its not worth a 2 year contract. I'm very dissapointed that Johnny Ive designed this phone.

    Ok, rant over.

    I understand it's not going to be a hit with the world. Can't please everyone, good luck with whatever you decide to move on to.

    Going today to apple for a check up on why that rattling is happening. It's annoying and can't take it anymore. Hopefully a positive outcome.
