I have the rattle also, its the Verizon sim card bay. This is how i found out...Open the phone, remove the battery, hold the bay with your thumb, and give the phone a shake. You shouldn't notice any rattling. As for a fix idk but at least it's nothing major.

You hit the nail on the head, Steephill. I fail at troubleshooting 101. Should have looked more carefully before posting. I didn't have the back off since the Verizon rep messed with it. (considering he switched up my wife's and my sim cards accidentally, I should have checked it over more carefully underneath the protective cover...).
Thanks for the responses, guys! Love this phone so far. Best phone to type on I've ever had.

Every Nokia 822 I have picked up has this rattle. I have had three Nokia 822 phones and visited two Verizon stores where their sample 822 phones all had the same rattle. The Verizon reps also verified they could hear the noise.
I'm glad to hear that there are some phones out there without this problem since Verizon's solution is to continue sending me replacement 822 phones until I get one that does not rattle. I really like the phone. Verizon has offered me the option of getting another phone on their network, which is nice, but I'd prefer this phone over their other options.
I have removed the battery, back cover, sim card, memory card and placed my finger on the card holders to secure them while lightly shaking the phone, the noise is still there... So, is it the card holders moving that produces the noise?
Anyone else have this problem?

Rattle you may perceive is one (or more) of three things: The sim card rattles in its tray (people are referring to the "camera rattle"), the contacts for the wireless charging, or the power button. The first one can be taken care of by sliding the sim card out and placing a piece of paper on top of it an re-inserting it. The second rattle can be fixed with a bit of paper over the contacts as you reinstall the cover, and the third is either one you have to live with, or you can get a phone cover that stops the vibration. My phone had all three rattles and is now perfectly silent with these three remedies. Hope this helps!

Mine hadn't rattled before, but it started a few weeks ago. I've got a piece of post-it note on the sim, a couple layers of post-it note over the pins for the wireless charging, and the phone is in the Trident Aegis, and it still rattles. Somewhere up near the top right side (facing the screen) is the best I can tell. It only bugs me some of the time, but still....--
