    I think it might be normal, but my volume rocker is a little lose in its fitting. It's not going to fall out or anything and it looks normal, but it does wobble quite easily... anyone else have the same?

    I assumed this was the case. Because I always have my phone in a case I have never noticed before...

    Not overly loose but it could be tighter,in both cases.

    My volume rocker is loose too. Doesn't sit quite flush and rattles when I tap it with a fingernail. Power button perfect though.

    My Desire is about three months old and the volume rocker is nice and solid.

    My power button is fine, but volume rocker could be tighter. Like i said, not broken but wobbles in its fitting if I play with it. Other than that phone is solid. I use a silicone case so buttons always protected.

    The power / volume buttons can differ quite drastically from one new Desire to another - it seems to be normal.

    Both the volume and power buttons are not loose in mine, there may be some batch differences .

    Part of the problem with asking is that people have different perceptions of what loose means.

    I had a look at some desires in shops as I was passing, and all had a slightly loose volume rocker.
