    Hi All,

    1st off OMG!!! how amazing is the desire i absolutley love it.. best phone ever lol.

    had to get tht off my chest to fellow desire owners.

    Anyways when i put my phone down it makes a slight rattle, after inspecting closer i noticed tht when i tap around the camera area it also makes a slight rattle. i have looked around and found tht people are having the same problem with the Nexus one and Hero and apparently its the auto focus......just wana knw if u fellow desire owners are having the same problem???

    Thanks Guys

    Mikey

    I've noticed a slight rattle too. It's not very obvious though, hopefully it's not a problem!

    Have we had any feedback from HTC on what the specific issue is?

    Exactly what I went through, it just fell off my bed post to the carpet below, no damage thank god, but started noticing the rattle.

    Does anyone here notice a rattle when the phone vibrates? Not very noticeable though..

    Glad I'm not alone! Recently bought a Desire and noticed this the other day. Wondered WTF it was and was wondering if something was loose inside. Symptoms every one else has described are exactly what I have so at least it seems to be 'common'. Hopefully it is just the autofocus mechanism moving about (sounds like a very plausible answer) and nothing to worry about.

    Oh, hello BTW as first post on here. :)

    I've seen it mentioned in a FAQ somewhere (maybe on here) that the rattle is the autofocus.

    I have been experiencing this rattle also. Today I realized that the rattle is not coming from the camera at all but rather the metal casing aroid tfhe led flash. I assume that the rattle everyone is experiencing is coming from the led flash and not the camera.
