    Anyone else have a rather noisy rattling sounds when slightly shaking phone back and forth? I've taken the S pen out and it was still there. It may be ois. But I just had a really weird thing happen. It's almost like all my antennas were messing up.in my phone. Normally when you turn on wifi your mobile data shuts off and mine was not. It's weird, I guess I've never noticed the rattling internals before and I've had this phone since launch. It's very loud too. Possibly the antennas came loose inside?

    It's probably the camera lens

    On AT&T, the 4G icon should go away when wifi is active. On Verizon it stays. Not sure about other carriers...

    More than likely camera lens. This is normal.

    Thanks I think it is something to do with the antennas because I have noticed that my reception bar has not left one bar all morning and my phone has still been discharging it is a very loud rattling noise I'm thinking my antennas came loose I'm heading to the AT&T service center now

    I also get a light rattle from light shaking. Don't know what it is but my reception seems fine.

    My phone is little over 2 weeks old.

    Refurb. Mine rattles as well. My note 4, s5, and s4 did as well. No reception issues.

    IIRC, the rattle is caused by the camera lens due to the image stabilization capabilities... in other words, it's not fixed in place... so if you shake it, it moves.

    If your Note 5 rattles it is working perfectly. When it stops rattling.....worry.

    Quick test: Launch the camera and lightly shake your phone near your ear...No rattle should be heard at all. Now shut the camera off and do the same and you'll hear the rattle. It is the optical image stabilizer doing it's job.

    Yes I understand that the camera rattles a little bit due to the ois. However this is more then just that. I have ran that test to.no avail. My service is in and out one minute I have 1 bar and the next I have full.bars. when I'm on wifi my 4g data does not turn off it stays on all the time
    Tried hard reset cleared cache. Still there it gets so bad to where I cannot call out nor send a text message then all the sudden it will be fine. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem. Att is sending me a replacement device. I even compared the rattle to another note 5 at att and mine was significantly louder and more pronounced. Almost like something inside the phone became loose. Possibly antennas or something along those lines that are causing intermittent service disrultion.
