    Had a Black iPhone 4 with AT&T, and my new White iPhone 4S is emmiting this awful vibrating sound, but when I firmly hold the sides of my phone, it quiets down, is this just me?

    Vibrate buzzing

    Same problem with my 4s. Back of the phone buzzes on vibrate. Hold firmly and noise stops. It's like back is loose. Store agreed and will swap it out when new stock in

    They changed the vibrator (haha), but really they did.

    Yah, the new vibrator is a linear vibrator - the iPhone 4 had a rotational vibrator.

    I thought I saw that the vibrator in all 4S iPhones is the same as the Verizon iP4.

    I was only curious if this was intentional or a malfunction. Not complaining, just looking for answers. Good to know there's nothing wrong!

    Siri doesn't work. 0M6 R4G3:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:
    (Simply because they're not doing it right.)

    I have the same problem with my new 4S and think it is a legitimate concern from the OP. FWIW, I've had all of the iPhones and have been VERY pleased. I'm sure Apple will be happy to fix the issue.

    Have this as well...
    Sometimes it buzzes, sometimes it doesn't.
    Irritating, guess I'll take it back when they get more in stock (I assume you can just walk in sometime in your first year of warranty)?

    This happens to me also. Did any one get theirs swapped out or do they all do it?
