    Back Ground Story I am currently on my second iPhone 4, and like the first, the back plate is clicking. I didn't tamper with the screws, but honestly it gets on my last nerve! I could buy a new back plate and pentelobe screw, but I need that money for my iPhone 5. I could get it replaced, but I have iOS 5 downloaded and I rather not loose all the features. I'll just live with it.

    Question For Poll Anyways, does your iPhone 4's backplate click when you press on it?

    Upon further inspection I have discovered that the left screw, the side that's clicking, is slilghtly loose, so I'm looking up pentelobe screws right now.

    It's a he. I think I need to update my non-existent signature. :D

    I'm about to buy the screw now. Was going to get it from iResQ, but then learned I could get it way cheaper from iFixit.
    LMFAO! I'm usually the king of jokes, but wasn't expecting this at all. Good job sir! +1

    No, he said screw. If he meant screwdriver he ought to have said that.

    OP, any reason you don't tighten the screw or take it into an Apple store and let them do it?

    My current white iPhone 4 does not click but every black one i ever owned eventually started clicking. Annoyed the crap out of me and my local genius wouldn't do anything but pop the plate off and tighten it. Which did nothing to solve the problem.

    In my opinion it's just the case flexing and they will all likely do this eventually. Some will notice and some won't.

    Mine just started doing this about a week ago and it's driving me nuts.

    I'm glad that the Geniuses will tighten the screws for you.

    Is Apple really making some mistakes in producing iPhones? Or are some people here that use the phone to look for flaws instead of using ir normally?

    No, people on this forums are OBSESSIVELY neurotic and the stupidest thing will set them into a rage, plummeting them into an Apple store demanding 17 boxes be opened until they find a new iPhone that is perfect in their eyes, all the while using their "terrible" iPhone to post threads chock full of bitching and complaining on these forums.

    However, this sounds legitimate, especially if it's an easy fix.
