    Shake your phone close to your ear once, then gently hold the sleep/wake button and shake it again. Is your button rattling?

    It's your camera. Not your sleep/wake button that is rattling.

    Mine is 100% the sleep/wake button. Only annoying on an incoming call when the phone vibrates and I hear the rattle near my ear.

    Why is it by your ear when it rings?

    Can't tell if you're joking. When I'm on a call, my ear is located by the earpiece on the top of the phone which is within an inch of the sleep/wake button. That's why it's so close.

    Yep, my old iPhone 4 had the same problem just much worse. I can hear it really well when i put my phone down on the table etc, and when i get a text while im on the phone the vibrate makes it rattle. I think any moving part is bound to rattle! :apple:

    I believe the iFixIt guys said the slight rattle was caused by the type of vibrator apple chose to put in the phone but I could be wrong.

    Sorry, didn't think about when you were already on a call.

    You're actually right that I forgot to mention that on my earlier post. Only annoying on incoming calls when I'm already ON a call.

    That's a relief, I thought you were using it as a pillow and I was going to recommend the 3GS for your needs. :D

    Looking at the poll, I'm thinking if I do swap my phone tmr, there is a good chance i will end up with a phone that has a rattling power button and other cosmetic flaws. Can't help but compare my odds of getting a perfect phone with the roulette table

    Mine has been rattling too. I noticed it while tapping the device one day. NOW the worst part is my sleep button is unresponsive half o the time. Going to have to exchange it for a new...

    Mine does, though I didn't actually know that the rattling sound was the button until somebody mentioned rattling iPhone 5s. Doesn't concern me though.
