Re: iPhone 4S: Rattling Sound...

The only way for them to give you a new one is if you are still under the 15 day policy ( that could have been changed from them). They give you a refurb'd one but everything is new on it. No Apple will not give you a unlocked one UNLESS yours was a unlocked iPhone. IF your iphone was locked to a carrier then they will give you a locked one to that carrier you have had it with.

Apple Store's have a hidden batch of iPhone 4S for replacements only. They are only able to hand those out for costumers that have problems with their current ones.

Nope/ Yours could be defective. I suggest you make a appointment with genius bar at your local Apple store & let them see what is wrong with it.

If anything it could be the lens not in place. They will give you a new / refurbished one ( in which the phone case, battery & all are new.)

Mine does it too. And it sounds like it's a pretty common problem:

So common, that it may not be a problem. But annoying, yes.

Yes! So im not the only one with this after all.. I thought it was the vibrate moter since it has a different one than the iPhone 4 and sometimes on vibrate it will REALLY rattle LOUD. I am going to go back to the Rogers Plus I got mine from and explain it, if no go there on any possible replacement (without a charge here..) then ill try the Apple Store here.

The only way to get a replacement iPhone is threw the Apple store. Rogers will not replace the iPhone for you. Apple does that.

I suggest you make a appointment with the genius bar at your local Apple store & go in. If you have not appointment most of the times they will not take you till the end of the day.

Re: iPhone 4S: Rattling Sound...

Question, when you go to apple store to get a replacement, how can they give you a replacement when the store never has stock? does this mean you would get a refurb'ed phone? Also, when apple replaces it, do they give you an unlocked phone?
