    on my 3g iphone wihen i shake it up and down 9along the iphones long axis) i hear a mass oscillate. my ipod touch does not exhibit same behavior so i dont think its the accelerometer

    is this a common thing or a defect?

    thanks

    Well then don't shake it, pretty simple :p

    Yes, my iPhone 3G makes a sound when shaken, but not when stirred.

    I never noticed and I don't shake my iPhone like that, but I do prefer shaken over stirred.

    Mine sort of clicks when I shake it. I went to the voice memos app and recorded me shaking it and you can hear it pretty clearly. And yes i recorded it while holding the silent switch and volum buttons still.

    My iPhone does not make any rattling noises. Send yours for a check. Could be a loose internal component.

    Take it to the Apple Store to get it checked out by the Genius Bar.

    And stop shaking your iPhone...
