    Hey, I bought my iPhone in September 2010, back then I noticed when I pressed the backplate, something clicks, like theres space between the backplate and the inside hardware.
    A few days ago, a friend of mine bought an iPhone 4 too, and I noticed that his is solid, nothing clicks or moves. It's not much of a problem, but that click drives me crazy.
    Is it normal? Could I swap my iPhone for a new one?

    Thanks a lot!

    mine does this as well, but not all the time. when i brought it in it wouldn't click so i told the guy that i would bring it back if it happened again (it did ). so i got to go back soon.

    My first iPhone 4 (from launch day) did this pretty much all the time. I just got used to it. However, I had a weird issue with my Power button and took it in for service: the replacement iPhone 4 (which I happen to know is actually a new unit, not a recondition) does this as well, but only very occasionally. So I think it's just random.

    Apple won't replace your unit for that specific issue, no. If something else goes wrong, they will.

    this isnt a cosmetic issue.

    OP, yes you can get it replaced, a friend of mine had the same problem and got it swapped. It will be replaced with a refurb.
