    Can anyone else move their volume buttons slightly (up and down) and if you tap the phone do they rattle slightly?

    This is the case on my iPhone 4

    Got my iPhone 4 2 weeks after it was released in the UK. My volume buttons are still perfect. Silent switch is nice and stiff too.

    The volume keys are very sturdy on my iPhone 4 as well.

    I can hear my lock button rattle when I shake the phone when the case is off. It's nothing to worry about. There are moving parts on the iPhone 4.

    But my point is that not everyone has the same problem. Also I have taken my iPhone to the Apple store 3 times for replacement. If I get it replaced tomorrow that is my 4th iPhone 4. They keep giving me Locked iPhones (locked to T-Mobile) When my original iPhone 4 was unlocked as I bought it from Apple directly.

    Not every iPhone 4 will have the same problems, which is why some people have keys that aren't as solid as others. If you don't want to replace your iPhone 4 again, I would try a case that covers the volume keys. This should prevent you from having the volume keys moving around.

    Is there actually a problem or is it just rattling?

    I remember my 3GS, the volume, silent toggle and power button always rattled. The iPhone 4, IMO has much better build quality.

    I guess I should have been more specific. Are there any functional problems with the phone? Is everything working properly?


    Initially, you said you can hear the buttons rattle if you tap the phone. Has it gotten worse?

    My volume buttons don't work on my lock screen anymore. I use it for irealsms quick reply. And also when the iPhone is locked I can open the camera like normal on ios 5 from the lock screen but the volume button won't snap the pic how ever it works in the camera app when accessing it through the home screen. It used to work but recently it just stopped. I'm running iOS 5.0.1 on my 3GS. How can I fix this?

    I have tried that to no avail. And on a side note I have to buy another replacement battery again. The original battery lasted 21 months. I bought a replacement and installed it 4 months ago and now it dies at 40%
