    Hello everyone
    I was having some trouble with dropped calls. So,I called apple about and they ran diagnostics on my phone and they had stated that it's my carrier verizon that is dropping calls. Sometimes when people call my cell phone either I don't get a missed call and / or the voicemail that they have left me. I was told by apple to remove and reinsert my sim. Card. Well now I heard a noise coming from. Does this mean that the SIM card is loose?!
    My iphone. Does my iphone 5 need to be replaced ?!
    Thank you.

    Your SIM card isn't loose. How is your coverage? If you don't have service or your voicemails are getting lost, it may be your carrier.

    iPhones can make a slight rattle. I've heard people attribute it to the camera.

    The ending is kind of confusing

    i know the 5s rattles from camera components but I'm not sure about the 5.

    Mine doesn't rattle. It may or may not be connected to your coverage though.

    No, camera is screwed to the frame with a bracket and two screws. That is not the sound, the sound is most likely the power button, or the vibrator motor. They sound lazy in the 5S for some reason.

    This.

    My power button rattles a little, but with a case on the phone it doesn't move so no noise.

    Don't shake it. See how simple that was.

    From what I've read, it isn't the camera module rattling, it's the lenses and mechanisms INSIDE the camera module.

    Either way, "don't shake your phone" actually works pretty well to fix the problem.

    But what if something's broken inside and could cause the phone to fail? As the old saying goes, prevention is better than cure.

    I agree. The SA at Verizon is claiming that it's a manufacturing variance on the item that causes the phone to vibrate.
