    So I ended up getting a new iPhone today (Black 32GB). I have been playing around with the video camera and I notice while recording (and while in playback) a rather obnoxious high pitch whine. The noise does not stop but maintains the same consistent high pitch whine.

    Anyone else?

    No noise on mine but I left it recording for about 30 minutes as a test, and the iPhone got pretty warm.

    Mine makes a small tone after sending an SMS message, and listening to audio from MLB... Its a really high pitched noise and hard to detect if you arent listening for it. Send an SMS to someone and put your phone to your ear...

    I second this. Lasts for about 5 seconds after the "Sent SMS" tone.

    Edit: I second the 'video record' whine too.

    Not a peep out of mine during video recording and playback.

    have the same issue - already a thread on this. it was suggested to me that it happens when recording with a quiet background. you can see an example of this 'whine' in the below thread:

    Yep, I have the whine. I hear it after sending an SMS and taking video. I'll see how this plays out (if there's a software update or something) before I worry about it. I can only hear it if I'm listening for it.

    You can put the phone on silent node and it will fix the ringing problem. Mine does the same thing and if you put it on silent it stops the high pitched noise in the video.

    To the OP: I should have answered your question. I also have a black 32 GB and there is no whine.
