    I just noticed this rattle coming from volume rocker when shaken, weird I never noticed it before. Is it just mine? Don't remember dropping it...

    Mine has it too. I'm pretty sure most if not every N4 does. I wouldnt worry about it.

    In my house.
    Yeah, I too have a small "rattle" noise from the top end of the phone if I tap it, or put it down sharply on a hard surface.

    They all do. It's a combination of 2 things on the N4. The sim ejection pin, and the camera. All newer AF cameras rattle

    So far I haven't noticed any rattles or creaks however I have read about quite a few people having rattles and that - as the poster above notes - most have been traced to the auto-focus on the camera and the SIM tray.

    I have the rattle. Also the earpiece hiss but I can only hear it in a very quiet room with my ear to the earpiece. Those things don't really bother me.
    What does bother me is my charger. It makes a noticeable high pitched noise when not charging eg in the middle of the night when my phone has finished charging :/

    Mine creeks and rattles, all normal according to Google. The bottom creek from the plug bsing used daily, it's the glass. The rattle is from the camera auto focus.

    It this were an apple product they would just tell you that you are holding it wrong, FYI. ;-)

    I have the rattle.... Glad I've seen this a thread. Thought something was wrong with my handset. Obviously normal :)
