    Hey guys - so on my new iphone 5 all my buttons are kinda jiggly - no big deal really - until i get any kind of call and notification and the vibration sets these things off and it sounds terrible with all the buttons rattling.

    I understand this is just a manufacturing tolerance thats allowed - I am picky as hell but I wont exchange again over this.

    So I am sure many of you suffer from this. Lets brainstorm on how we can minimize the effect?

    First random though - what about a touch of liquid latex into the buttons - it runs down slightly - thickens, dries into a very thin rubber "shim"?

    And once the "best" suggestion is chosen, are you gonna volunteer your new iPhone 5 to test it out for everyone else? :D

    All sleep and volume buttons have some wiggle room. Stop trying to look for issues and enjoy your phone!

    I know its minor - no need to remind me of this. If it doesn't effect you thats cool.

    Anyone have any other ideas?
