    I was surprised that my 920 did NOT rattle like my 900 did. Now that I'm reading how many people's 920s are rattling too I'm even more surprised.

    It never really bothered me on the 900 in any case. As a prior post pointed out, it makes for a very noticeable vibrate, which I appreciate.

    In any case, it seems like many, but not all, 920s sound the same way.

    Lol! Personally, I would welcome a rattle for the vibrate on my phone. I currently use a N8, and the vibrate is virtually non existant since I purchased it - it is very faint. My pay go phone even had a more substantial vibrate than my N8. I've heard the Blackberry vibrate fumction, and I think it's ideal.

    I've got the same thing (it's actually the only reason I found/signed up for this forum), I was excitedly playing with the phone and a call came in and I couldn't believe how terrible the vibration sounded. It sounds like there's a thin air gap between the back of the case and the vibrating motor, and it's just rattling against the case. I think I'm going to head back to ATT today and see about an exchange, it really makes the phone feel/sound like cheap hardware.

    I might go in and do this in a few days because the only way I could live with this for anything long term is to turn off the vibrate function.

    Why is that? Is it because they expect a quality product?

    Well, I went in to the store, both of the display models and both of the stocked models had the exact same sound.
    I went ahead and replaced anyway since I think I may have had a faulty battery (only charged from 23 -> 97% in 9+ hours. first time I plugged it in it went from 14 -> 17% in 2 hours).
    Not too happy about the vibration, but we'll see if it either stops bothering me or becomes less buzzy.

    Must be. I guess we have no say on the quality of something we pay for.

    Anyway, just went to AT&T, they had one left & it did the same thing. I'm going to go back in a week.

    so I guess the sound it produces is considered normal, that rules the phone out for me. Is it too much to want a clean vibrate? Feature phones did this for years and years, I don't see why we have to take steps back here

    Yea I noticed this too. The phone seems to heat up after the vibrate also. It seems to vibrate longer than my HTC Surround did.

    What I don't understand about all of this is that MS/Nokia gave out these phones to everyone at Build and not a single person mentions the vibrate oddness? Nothing was even mentioned in Daniel's review here on WPCentral. No one experienced this except for people who bought the phone on launch day? Seems a bit hard to believe.

    That's exactly what I was thinking and is why I think the phone shouldn't be doing this. If the motor was this loud on the review units, it most likely would have been mentioned.

    What came out of that? Did Nokia do anything or did the people who had the problem just have to live with it or go back to AT&T and take their chances on getting a unit that didn't have the problem? My last phone was a Focus S so I didn't follow the 900 problem.

    And you just swapped it out till you found one that was quieter?

    I exchanged it 14 times in 30 days, the sales rep was really cool & I just kept doing it with him. Luckily, the final batch was good, if not, Nokia was going to get involved

    I turned my vibration off on my 900 when I heard the rattle. I recently turned it back on, and remembered why I'd turned it off. I never pursued anything with AT&T. I am disappointed to hear that the rattle is still there.

    How does one test the rattle in store? I tried on a store display model, but couldn't figure out how to test vibration. Turning it on and off didn't accomplish that.

    I've accepted it. Actually used to it now. In fact, I'd say it's more effective? I'm going to put a case on it eventually which will dampen it probably. Seems like the red one rattled a bit more. I swapped red for black because it was too glossy/slippery feeling. Matte is just mmm good. My wife has competition. ;)

    How did Nokia get notified when you were working out the issue with the 900?

    And yeah, I want to know this too.
