Something is rattling / loose inside the phone

    I've only been using my Nexus One for about 24 hours and it has suddenly started rattling when i place it down on a surface or shake it a little. It also occurs when the phone vibrates. As you can imagine this is pretty annoying, especially as you'd expect something that costs over $500 to be very well built.

    I've worked out it's coming from the top end of the device near the camera but I can't find exactly what it is that's causing the problem :(

    Has anyone else come across this or did I just get unlucky? I've been very careful handling the phone.. haven't abused it at all.

    I'd call HTC and get them to replace it. Unless you've rooted it. In which case... um... hugs?

    Yeah I think I'll give HTC a call tomorrow and see what they say. I feel like I'm being a bit fussy but it is really irritating :(

    Hahaha I never noticed the slight noise when putting it down on something but now I hear it. My bet is it has to deal with whatever triggers the screen to switch orientations when rotating the phone.

    But to call it "rattling" is extreme.

    It's common. We had this discussion on the Hero forum. My Hero did it for 6 months from day one and my Nexus One does. It is no big deal.

    Okay thanks for the input guys, I won't worry about it. It's strange that the iPhone doesn't do this as well though :)

    Mine do it too. Somewhere right around te camera. Doesn't bother me too much and the phone works pretty well otherwise.

    I noticed mine does it too, it is something in the vicinity of the camera. I hear it sometimes when I put the phone down on a hard service. I don't really see the big deal, but then again I am the type of person who has never used a case or a screen protector on any phone I have ever used.
