I'm ALMOST positive the rattle is the vibration motor weight. Every single iP4 I've tried has the same rattle. Shaking the phone is not the easiest way to hear it though. If you GENTLY tap the back of the phone in the corner where the camera is, you'll hear it. The rattle actually comes from the side opposite the camera exactly where the vibration motor weight is.

Ive found that if you hold down the lock button on top of the iP4 then try and shake or rattle it the noise won't replicate. I wonder what the button is connected to that it could be putting pressure on and stopping the noise?

Mine and my wife's iP4 have the rattle. It appears to be the power button. Try pressing down on the power button as if you're trying to turn off the phone and shake it: when I pres down on the power button, the rattle doesn't occur.

Mine is rattling too. I couldn't figure it out, but I think you're right about the power button. Tried pressing power button. No rattle either.
