Rattling Sound in iPhone 4

Okay, the phone is nearly 2 years old but, kept is very nice condition, no dents and very minimal usage marks.

Sudddenly, yesterday near the speaker on top of the phone, if i shake the phone in hand, it rattles with something loose inside. It works perfect. Now that I know that, its really bothering me..any idea what it may be ??

I know that the rattle is common in iPhones for some reason. Most of the time it's nothing major and won't affect longevity of your phone in any way.

From what I've read about it, it can be caused by:
  • Camera Lens
  • Loose lock button
  • Speaker rattle

Haven't heard of any of these causing major problems though. Hopefully that helps.

yeah it does help, but now its really annoying me. Not sure when it started, just observed it now. I tried looking for any loose lens or speaker, could not feel it from outside, I could not make it from power button.
