    Well one thing that infuriates me is phones that have loose moving parts, power buttons, volume rockers, etc!

    And low and behold my SG3 has a loose volume rocker. I'm pretty interested is seeing if it's a wide spread thing, or just pretty much the luck of the draw.

    So who's Volume Rocker is loose, and who's is not?

    Yeah, mine is :(

    Any 3.5mm plug that I plug in has to be a wiggled a bit for both left and right speakers.

    The left seems to be fine, but the right one is the one I have an issue with.

    Edit.... I thought you were talking about the 3.5 mm plug..... just ignore me. :)

    Has some wiggle too it, but it's under tension so it stays put.

    My volume and power buttons are both loose. I thought this was normal. Oh well.
