    ok, I had this problem too (and i still have it now)

    here's what you do to qualify for an exchange:
    if you shake the phone, and you hear a rattling sound(like the camera housing), you can go down and have your iPhone exchanged. I had that problem so I got mine exchanged, no conditions attached.

    However, my exchanged iPhone still has the rattling sound when I tap the camera lens(i searched google, found out its the autofocus lens), so yeah I think its normal.(you might not be able to get an exchange with this problem only, I had both the aforementioned and this)

    It's normal.. Apple made so many iPhone 4 and I hear the quality control isn't the best on this new model. You rarely heard anything like this with the 3GS that's why I didn't trade mine for the new iPhone

    The 3GS is a much better phone

    I disagree other than the camera the phone feels more solid without a case my 3Gs back was scratched bad after a few days the 4 has maybe two or three after a week.

    Eh, the lense makes some sounds because it has moving parts because of auto focus... this is not a defect and any phone with AF will do this, haha apple must be very angry at customer complaining about problems that doesnt exists :D

    Yep, its the autofocus lens. I bet the manual mentions it.
