    sorry but that's rubbish. Other Nokia phones including the older Lumias rattle as well, and they don't have the OIS tech of the 920. I doubt the floating lens is unsuspended when not in use anyway, kind of how a hard drive arm parks at the side when done to not damage the disks if suddenly moved

    Mine does the same thing, my phone was laying on the table and my wife asked if it was broken. I'm going to hold off on returning it due to this thread. It does seem like it makes the phone better in pocket at actually feeling the phone, my IPhone4 I don't really feel sometimes.

    EDIT: Adding video of it here.



    EDIT 2: Yes, we get that not everyone has this issue or might not be bothered by it. We're still trying to figure it out.
    Just sounds like the ceramic buttons vibrating to me. Maybe I'm missing something.

    Mine sounds the same. If anything I thought it was too quiet. Maybe my iPhone 4 was just really loud because of the case it had or something... dunno.

    Guys, go back and change your phones, I got a Black one on Launch day, it had the loud rattle issue, did and exchange cuz it has dust under the camera lens, that one did had the rattle issue as well, today I went to the store to swap for a White one( I was waiting for the manager to call me) it was a new shipment they got today, this White one is perfect, no rattle at all.

    Just to quell my paranoia, I wanted to see if the slight rattle I hear when my phone vibrates is normal for the Lumia 920. I went to two different AT&T stores in my area, and tested out four display models. They all make the same exact slight rattle when they vibrate.

    I think that's pretty good evidence that this is how the phone is supposed to sound.

    Wow, obviously some of you aren't paying attention lol, this is NOT normal. Wasn't normal on the 900, isn't normal on the 920. The many users who have proper devices are proof of this. My original 900 rattled, 4 weeks & 14 devices later, I got one that didn't

    I've been talking with Nokia support on Twitter. If you have this issue then contact them and start the dialogue.

    I sent an email to Nokia Support asking about the vibration/rattle thing.

    Just to be clear, the vibration on my Lumia doesn't bother me at all. I do, however, want to know if my device is defective. If it's defective, and the defect may cause issues down the road, I'd replace it.

    Anyhow, I emailed Nokia Customer support, and I've attached a screen shot of Nokia's response.

    I guess I'll forgive their misspelling of "rattling". They're Finnish, after all.

    This response, along with checking out the demos at a couple of stores exhibiting the same vibration rattle, leads me to believe that these are how the phones are made.

    And to those who believe otherwise...hope you find/have found a device you enjoy.

    I think you hit the nail on the head with this. The top of my phone pops and creaks near the headphone jack if you push straight down. The bottom of the phone is not loose like this. This could be the exact cause of the vibration rattle. The case is not seated properly at the top of the phone causing it to rattle when set to vibrate.

    I've noticed in apps such as "Massager" that it has varying levels of vibration intensity. If someone could create an app that would apply this theory to our vibration function tied to the notification services, then we could throttle down the vibration on notifications. Reducing the vibration greatly reduces the risk of the "Rattle" we're experiencing. I'd pay a dollar or two for that! Get to work! :P

    I have not downloaded the SDK yet but I don't think that this is possible without rooting

    See you have way more patience than me. There is NO way I would make it anywhere close to 14 devices before I'm just like, "F this.. getting something different".

    That's interesting because I contacted Nokia US and they are looking into it more. There is something going on.

    normal or not, this is the most hilarious sounding vibrate pattern ever pulled off on a phone. the initial mini-pop to hard motor sound... lol. if so many lemons weren't floating out there, i'd consider exchanging but for now i'm ok just having a funny phone.

    Went to a corporate store tonight to exchange my phone. While waiting for a rep, I tested both 920's they had on display...both rattled. The three replacement phones the rep brought out for me all rattled too. I ended up not exchanging my phone as it doesn't exhibit any of the other build quality issues. I guess it is what it is.

    No point in switching, Nokia has made the best device ever with the best support. I'm waiting until a new shipment comes into my store here to switch it

    It's even worse if your phone happens to be upside down in your pocket, or in a backpack. Whatever is causing the rattle is exaggerated by the phone being turned upside down.

    Coming from a phone where there vibrate function often chose not to work and when it did it wasn't really that noticeable I was looking for a phone that would vibrate so I notice it. The 920 ticks that box for me pretty well. I did notice the other day that the very first part of the vibration does make a slight rattle but it doesn't bother me at all and if Nokia themselves are saying its not an issue that sort of settles the issue for me. I noticed that when there's a call and I move the phone I only hear the tone anyway so it makes it even more of a non issue as that's the only time I'd really get any sort of prolonged vibrate issue.

    Its not the rattle I am concerned about, its the time. if i am in my office, I noticed that any sms or whatsapp mesg does a 3 step rattle, which is way too long that I have switched it off. Now I miss some of my emails and messgs when I am in office. HMM.
