Just picked up my new iphone 5 20 days ago and encountered the same problem. I heard the rattle when I shook the phone near my ear. There were 2 sounds actually.. 1.The autofocus made noise. 2. There was another sound which was found out be a loose power button.
So I went to the service centre and replaced it for a new one.But still I am facing the exact same problem.
The sound is so irritating and I am regretting to have bought an apple product which is considered to be premium.
They say that the rattle cannot be stopped completely. But I am again gonna pay them a visit soon !!

No apple does not cater to international warranty's.
The solution is that you ship the phone back to Australia and get it replaced there and again ship it back to India.
It's fairly difficult unless you have a contact in Australia who is willing to take these pains for you !!

If it is a small more high pitched rattle it will most probally be the camera lens focus which has been talked about on the 4s and the 5, but i talked to apple and they said its not a problem its perfectly fine, but if anything stops workin or it gets worse just take it in. On the other case if its a loud rattle its gonna be the battery coming loose which you could take it back and they will fix it or give you a new phone or you could try a method by placing your iphone on its back and pressing quite firmly on the glas and it will stick the battery back down.
Hope his helps Everyone!

I literally got the iphone5 delivered like an hour ago and immediatley notice this rattle noise when putting phone down! How cheap and tacky it sounds - seems it doesn't affect operation - but it make you think it could / something loose...
The box was sealed and phone was mint, yet hearing this noise made me doubt it was new until i searched and found so many other complaints!
I cant beleive this is 'normal' - seriously the folk that lets this go out of production should be ashamed.
