    It's the autofocus, the rattle is perfectly normal.

    You have to ask yourself if it effects the function of the phone in any way. If it does then the issue needs to be adressed but if not and until it does, perhaps you can ignore it.

    Shake with mute on, then off, often it's the button rattling.

    The actual moving parts of the accelerometer are so small that they're not going to make any noise that a human ear will be able to hear.


    It's the autofocus lenses in the camera.

    It's the weight from the vibrate motor. It's normal.

    I am so friggin tired of people who can not compose a title relevant and accurate to their thread. And of people who yell HELP for a physical defect in their phone. How are we supposed to HELP?

    Come to think of it, I'm just tired of people.

    The rattling sounds are probably the dead corpses of the 2 rats which they installed inside to run the OS faster...hence the 3g "S".

    :rolleyes:
