well here's a quick question, I just noticed that my iPhone rattles when shaken lightly, I suspect that the power button is the culprit, since it doesn't rattle when I shake it with the hand on the power button ( very smart ) a little check online I found a few who went to the apple store and got it replaced but that's in the states not Canada.
Now, since I bought the iPhone from Bell, do I go back to the bell store and try to get a replacement or do I just go to the apple store??
also did anybody else have this annoying rattling noise?
really they replace it? i thought the iphone 4 just came manufactured like that :/ too bad theres no apple store close by and i dont want to send it in for a replacement and be without a phone for a week.

Hmmm... Mine's doing this too. Wouldn't mind so much, but worried it could be a problem down the road if they feel the need to replace it. Could be letting dust into places it shouldn't I suppose. Sigh, have they had replacement 32Gb units in stock?
So I took mine to the Apple store. 2 odd things but I'm fairly satisfied with the result. 1) she plugged it in and showed me the hardware diagnostic. The thing was it didn't show any dropped calls even though I'd experience a LOT of call failed messages. Possible they were dropped on the other end but unlikely they ALL were. 2) she showed me that even her personal iP4 rattled te same way. She took it apart and assured me there wasn't anything mechanically wrong with it, that it was just the power switch. So I don't know, I wasn't going to push it. I like this one and there's no guarantee that a replacement would be a better phone.
C'est la vie.

Same experience here, had a rattle (mine sounded like the camera) - not only did the replacement the genius gave me work (no rattle), I also haven't had any of the quality issues I'd had with the previous one (failed calls etc.). Now I actually think I might like this phone
I live in the interior of BC but thankfully was in Edmonton on business where there are two apple stores. They were great. (Thankfully I'd remembered to backup everything before the trip, because I wasn't planning on the replacement).
