    its the accelerometer more the likely. when you active the camera you will hear a mechanical click as well.

    I believe that the sound is caused by the camera's auto focus lens. My iPhone 3Gs also made the exact same noise when putting it down on a flat surface.

    How is it an issue? Is it causing the phone or camera not to work?

    When I tap mine I here it as well. Not a big deal though as my phone works just fine.

    Yes, I have this "issue" too. I thought it was because I dropped my phone once (no damage though, caught with my foot so it didn't hit the floor very hard). I was actually going to take it into Verizon to see if it was broken, haha... Glad to see it's normal though :D

    Considering that most likely 100% of the Eris phones do this. No, I would not be concerned at all.
