    When my 3gs vibrates there is an annoying rattle coming from somewhere near the sleep button. Is this normal?

    Mine too! Except I dropped mine on concrete day 1 so I assumed that was the cause.

    haha, i haven't dropped mine yet. mine only rattles when i hold the phone vertical. when i lay it flat the vibrate stops, so i think somethings wrong.

    edit: the rattle stops when i lay it flat not the vibrate
