    Quick Question I just received my Bionic and noticed the volume rocker and the power buttons are a have rattle to them compared to my X which are rock solid. Does anybody else have this issue? When I move the phone around I can hear them rattle.

    Thanks

    I didn't notice that until now. lol I do know that there's a slight rattle coming from the camera but that's just because of the autofocus. iPhone 4s have the same issue with rattling cameras.

    Mine are not horrible but that is the first thing I noticed when I took it out of the box. And I am sure it is going to annoy me. I might wait until Monday and see how it is and if it is still bothering me call Verizon for a replacement.

    Mine doesn't really rattle and I don't notice it much unless I really start to shake it.

    I stopped in the Verizon store on my way home from work. The display model keys where rock solid but I had one of the reps grab a new one to check out and it rattled. I guess it is hit or miss. Mine is on the really loose end if I wiggle it in my hand all the buttons rattle.

    volume equals a little rattle on shaking, not noticeable unless the phone vibrates - then it is noticeable.

    Power button doe snot rattle at all.

    Mine rattles. volume rocker more than the power button. Its pissing me off. I hate to exchange over something so minor though.

    My volume and power buttons do the same thing. It really sounds like this is happening more often than I had thought. I think the bar was set really high by my OG so I view this as annoying. As it's the only thing annoying me at the moment I'll ignore it until a button no longer responds then I'll deal with it under warranty.

    I stoped by another Verizon store on Saturday and had the rep pull out some bionics from the back and they all rattled. I ended up swapping mine out for one that rattles slightly less
