    So last night I dropped my iPhone, unlike previous dropping instances, this one was bad.

    It bounced on the topside of the phone and very slightly dinted the casing... no immediate problems, however it's now started playing up.

    When it vibrates, it makes a rattle noise.

    Also, when it rings, or plays music through the speakers, somehow it's sped up. Like when a cassette jams and it plays super-fast, it's doing it to all my music/sounds.

    Any ideas on what can be done with this?

    Thanks,

    first, try a reset. if that doesn't work:

    take it to the nearst apple store or(if you still have an active warranty) call apple.

    sounds like it's broken

    A-ha!

    The reboot sorted the sound problem, but the vibrate is still sounding like a violent rattle.

    At least one problems gone, so I'll just pop to an apple store soon to see what can be done with the dodgy vibrate...

    Actually, I'm still in warranty, so I'll call them first... see what they say.

    Hopefully a replacement? Or am I dreaming there?
