    unsure as to the cause?

    There's a very slight rattle from mine, I have put it down to the fact that there are removable components situated at the top of the phone such as sim card, mem card, camera etc.

    Wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Yeah mine does it...and to be honest it makes the phone feel/sound cheap even though it's not.

    It isn't the sim card holder or memory card slot...I don't even think its the camera...it think its inside where the headphones plug in.

    It's just something we gotta put up with I guess

    I'm fairly certain it's the camera.

    When you turn the camera on and off you can hear a little click, I presume it's the shutter being opened or something like that.

    Are you guys sure you have fully closed the sim cradle as this has come up before.

    I'm with Wahwah, I always assumed it was something to do with the camera's shutter.

    It's caused by the lens' auto-focus mounting, I think.

    I think it's something to do with the headphone port.

    I had some problems, where I thought my speaker had blown because there was a horrible distortion and crackling when I turned up the volume during a phone call.

    Turns out the speaker is fine but it's something to do with that rattle, when the volume was up it caused a vibration. I had a play around with the headphone jack and that seemed to sort it. Haven't had the problem since.

    I believe its the auto focus lense as well, or at least something with the camera.

    While holding the lense with battery cover off and tapping the top of the phone, I have a greatly reduced rattle.

    If that's all it is, I can deal with that. As long as its not something that will later become an issue with the performance of the phone's functionality.

    Did I not read somewhere that HTC did a mod.
    New back cover I think free of charge.

    Yeah, mine rattles too. Just had a look and am sure it is the camera. What makes it more annoying is that the camera is crap anyway.

    Kind of rattles when I tap it, makes no sound when I shake it.

    As I don't tap the back of my phone, today was the first time, I think I'll just forget about it.

    Maybe when they release the Hero 2 I'll go down to the Orange shop and kick up a fuss, you never know it might work ;)

    Cheers Al

    I was in the Orange shop today. The very kind salesman gave me some valuable advice when I told him my Hero rattled when I tapped the back.

    "Don't tap the back then."

    :D

    its the vibrator(there is a rotating mass)
    alot of the times they are slightly loose so when u shake/tap the phone you hear it rattle.

    yeah I think its the vibrate motor, I've returned one phone already because it gets looser and vibrates when volume is up, annoying, this ones doing the same too, may return it again.
