    Hello everyone

    on my way to footbal camp at the moment, and other than just realizing that I forgot my boots at home, I noticed something very strange with my iPhone.

    I was reading on some webpage about some cool things you could do by shaking your iPhone. So I tried it. And to my surprise a horrible grinding sound came from my 3gs. It didn't come from a speaker either, it seemed to have come from elsewhere on the phone. It vibrated the phone slightly and was very loud. All help and ideas would be appreciated.

    The speakers were muted also


    P.s. Footbal as in American soccer, not American Handball

    Sounds bad; don't even try to repeat the noise. Take it back as soon as you can. And when you mention "boots" I'm assuming those are the same as "cleats" in the USA? Good luck with football camp....:cool::cool::cool:

    Does the camera still work. My neighbors camera is very loud when he taps to focus.

    Yes the camera does still work. Do iPhones have SSD hard-drives?

    They use flash, NAND chips IIRC.
