    it's a horrifically glaring flaw on some phones that somehow doesn't hinder usage in the slightest.

    I actually never noticed, until now, mine rattes/loose slightly. Oh well, it still works. Another reason I'm glad I got AC+

    Make sure , dont say your phone rattle , they won't replace it for you. When i went there and give that reason I was told that it was from camera and normal and they won't replace it for me. so i made an another appointment in diff store and say I have a flickering screen . They can't deny that and gave me new one. Please make sure dont say your phone rattle

    I was in getting my faulty earpods replaced and asked about it. Genius told me it was normal (within specs).

    So you committed fraud because you couldn't deal with a button having a bit of wiggle? That's pretty pathetic, and basically theft.

    How do you know his screen wasn't flickering? All the white box replacements I've gotten (and I've gotten more than a few) have the flickering problem.

    Even if he didn't have the flickering screen, how is getting a faulty power button replaced under warranty fraud? Just because he spoke to a prick genius the first time who wouldn't help him?

    No defect on my iPhone 5 nor my wife's. No wiggle on the power button.

    Or to prove your point you could have simply shook your phone for the rattle and then placed your finger on top of the button and repeat to show that it is indeed the power button.

    It's a warranty thing, so anyone with this 'issue' can get a free replacement.

    Well if the buttons was hard and stuck, then you wouldn't be able to press it.

    It's funny, my 4S did that when I first got it a few months ago and it was slightly annoying but it's since gone away. *shrugs*

    I understand that. I was more talking about the 2nd year of ownership. If you don't have AC+ you're out if luck after that.

    You think I didn't try the power button test? I tried everything , placing my finger on all the buttons and shake it . It still rattles and the sound came from the entire phone not just near the camera

    ----------

    That's not true, I tell them the truth that the screen flickers.. It flicker when I go to the App Store password so I didn't lie. The genius told me that the rattle part I can't do it but the screen part he can replace it..
