Has anyone noticed that the volume buttons do not feel as solid as they do on the iPhone 4? There is a noticeable sound when you run your fingers across the volume buttons.

I can also hear a rattling sound when I shake the phone, but I'm not sure if the buttons are the source of the sound.

Lens Cover

It's the crystal camera lens cover. I placed my finger on the crystal cover and no more rattle. It's part of the design.

The 4S had the same rattle and it was the camera....definitely part of the design and Apple will not replace a device because of it.

My old 3gs buttons rattled a lot. it only bothered me the 1st day i got it then i forgot about it. I knew a few people with the 3gs and they had rattling buttons. My 4 never rattled. Seems like the 5 wouldn't either but i don't have my 5 yet.
