    Scary. My phone now rattles. Something has evidently come loose inside the phone. I've no idea what it is, but it rattles when I move the phone. Bizarre. I'm on a waiting list to trade this one out at the Best Buy I pre-ordered from, but they've had no stock and there is no idea when they might get any additional AT&T iPhones in.

    I hope this one keeps working until then. :confused:

    I just wanted to bump this up, in case anyone has had something similar happen.

    Anyone with any idea what this loose object might be?

    Try search. There are several threads on this.

    Some say it's the vibrator. Some say the camera.

    Happens on mine too. There's definitely a few threads on this so far. It's either the sleep/wake, camera, or vibrator.
