    It has mechanical autofocus. Maybe yours is broken??

    No noises here though....

    Yes. I noticed it today. It's a very light noise. My understanding it's the accelerometer...? I don't think it will cause any problems...

    I guess it is the vibrator for the silent mode?

    could it be the power button rattling?

    I just found out that my phone has the same noise...i thought something was wrong and wanted to ask the forum...
    I guess I'm not the only one....

    cshih2, did you get a replacement phone due to this problem???

    I think I posted this elsewhere. We had this on the Hero forum. It's common and doesn't seem to be a problem. My Hero did it and My Nexus one does it.

    Must be an HTC thing...

    I guess that is normal. I tried the Goggles and the Barcode Scanner, both they have that noise when the camera opens again after listing the searching result.

    Its the sound of the mechanical autofocus when it power on in goggle or any camera related program.
