Hello,
When I shake my iphone, there is a rattle around the micro sim area. Does anyone else seem to have this issue?

Thanks in advance.

    I thought mine was rattling yesterday, but it was the bumper I had on, the silver buttons rattled when I shook it. Has yours got a bumper on?

    When I put mine back on the rattle stopped so if you fiddle with it you can get it rattle free :O)

    I heard there was an issue with the auto focus on the 3gs causing a rattle noise, maybe thats the issue?

    Yes, I have noticed a rattle as well coming from the upper third of the device. When lightly tapping the back by the Apple logo, shaking the phone, or even gently laying down on its back, I hear this rattle. Obviously this is not natural. I'll wait it out a few more days and see if more people start discussing this topic and then head into an Apple store for a Genius appointment. Honestly, I doubt they currently have any phones to swap out defective units at this time, so going now wouldn't make a hoot of difference.

    My on/off button rattles a bit. Not enough to bug me, but it does have a little wiggle to it.

    Try putting your finger on the sleep/wake button. I could hear a rattle, but when I placed my finger on the sleep/wake button and shook it again, the rattle was no more

    Have narrowed down mine to the power button being slightly loose and rattling, when I put my finger over it, rattle free. Can live with that!

    Greetings,

    No - Not yet, probably never - not unless I do something stupid, like drop it.

    Cheers,
