After reading all the posts on the issues the iPhone has I thoroughly examined mine. Its perfect, except you can really hear the camera rattle. That's the only rattle the phone makes. Its much louder than the 4S. Even when you move it slightly you can hear it, kind of like something is loose in the camera?

During a call its SOMEWHAT NOTICEABLE. Is this normal, because some have no rattle and some do?

I dont want want to exchange it and get a real defective unit. Thanks

I was worried about this on my iPhone 5... I had it exchanged due to a few dents out of the box and the replacement also has the rattle. My 4 and 4S also had it so it's normal for iPhones but I do notice it more on the 5, maybe because the back panel is thinner.
