Like someone said, It's the camera lens.

i had this same issue with my iPhone 4 when i had it about 5 months ago, I didn't like the noise. Tracked the noise down and when i tap on the camera area the iphone would make a noise. If you tap near the camera area of he Lumia 900 it will start making a rattling noise. thus = camera lens.

No. Wrong. Its the vibrator. I had my phone spread across a table with a pinpoint stethoscope. Camera and vibrator are right next to each other so it is an easy assumption to make but the lens is not the culprit.

My 900 has just gone back to Nokia for repair for the vibration rattle, and the clicking screen in the top right hand corner. When I reported the fault to them, their first response was for me to book a warranty repair. No "have you reset, have you done this or that" nonsense. As soon as I said it was rattling when the vibrate function was used they said "you'll have to send it to us for repair".

Of course, what the service people do when they get hold of it may well be a different matter, but at least the front line didn't try and pretend there wasn't a problem....

They just shipped me out a new phone because my speaker blew...I didn't know it was company policy to replace a faulty phone with a used phone (they sent me a used phone with only a cheap piece of plastic covering the screen).

Looks like you will be getting a couple drops of hot melt. One for each issue.

The thought had occurred. I reckon it's more likely to be sent back with no fault found. I do love a good, er, reasoned debate centred around my consumer rights...
