    No... at least the Droid Razr I looked at the other day didn't seem to have any rattles. The only thing I heard was the echo coming from my wallet when I looked to find some cash to pre-order one with. :eek:

    Oh well... Christmas isn't that far off! ;)

    I shook it as well seeing that the power button wasnt seated well. No rattles. The button is so light its doesnt even move if that makes sense.

    If you tap the back of the device at the top you will hear a rattling. That rattling is now heard in all my conversations. I'm quite irritated at the moment because this is an expensive phone and I shouldn't have to hear buzzing from loose components while in a conversation. I will be returning this phone in hopes it is a manufacturing problem.

    Pack some axle grease around that switch! that'll fix your "rattle".

    Mine rattles and im pretty sure its with the speaker, something loose, maybe the housing to channel the sound? Anyway thats the only place I could find any vibration coming from. It also seems to be alot more noticable when on speakerphone then when playing audio from the music player. In a few weeks I will pull off the battery cover to take a look inside and then go to the rattle and use a dot of locktight to stop it, or a tiny strip of sticky foam. From the teardown it appears there is no warranty void if removed stickers.

    i would think that your warranty is gone the second you crack open a phone that is designed to not be opened like that. but that's just a guess.

    Owell screw the waranty, if anything went wrong with my phone id just do a insurance claim anyway instead of a warranty claim.
