Why does my iPhone rattle when it vibrates?

It doesn’t sound good! Can I fix my rattling iPhone myself, or will I have to pay someone? Its not in warranty any more

Sounds like the vibration unit is loose? Are you good with fixing tiny bits? It cannot be too expensive to have it fixed - assuming it just needs tightening. You could just disable vibrate?
Well, follow this link The guy has the same problem. Watch the video tutorial showing how to open it. Might give you an idea wether you're up for the job ;)

Similar thread on the apple forums too. I think you should maybe go to your nearest genius bar and ask advice there, if you're not comfortable trying it yourself.
