    Ok, thanks! Went today but wasn't such an easy process. My local store is only an "authorised reseller" so they wouldn't replace t. I now have to go into reading where the nearest real one is on Monday

    Don't worry, it's worth the trouble, rather than having around an unwanted musical iPad. (Using the flaw inside your iPad as the instrument xD)

    Oh this is bloody ridiculous. I ring up today just to make sure before leaving. And I now have to make an appointment to see a technician?! For late tomorrow. I just need to swap this for anew one. So unfair, it's a joke. And even then she only talked about a repair. What the hell! How do ou even repair this device, if it is it will ruin the appearance of it when it's only two weeks old! I deserve a fresh new one. Payed 650 for this and this is what I get. Apple are a bunch of Edited by Moderator - this is a family friendly forum, not a bar, please mind your language. for this issue in the first place and then messing me around like this.

    That's the normal procedure when bringing in an iPad for warranty issues. The Apple technicians have to verify that the problem is indeed covered by the warranty. You will receive an exchange for a new or refurbished iPad. You should walk out of the Apple store with a fully functioning iPad.

    Ok fine. But I better have this sorted tomorrow because it's stressing me the hell out! I'm gonna throw a fit in the shop most likely if they don't give me a new one!

    Hi Gordon how did you get on. I seem to have the same issue. Slight noise up near the sleep/lock button and the button is quite loose. Was in the apple store today and they said was quite normal but also kinda hinted if I insisted they would swap it. I didn't go for this straight away as they were also taking in my MBP for repair and I didn't want to be left with nothing as I use for work. And also I have icarbon skins and won't get them refunded and they came from the states...anyways just wondered how you got on and if the rattle is gone. Ps is your lock button slightly movable. Think they thought I was an OCD freak (well I kinda am thanks, Kevin

    Just FYI, the sound you guys are hearing could be the camera. Some make more of a noise than others but the new iPad has the same auto focus feature as the iPhones and when you tap it or even when you set it on the table you will hear it. This really concerned me with my iPhone but it is completely normal. My iPad makes similar noise only not as noticeable. I cannot be sure this is what you are hearing but from what you describe and where you are hearing this sound from this could very well be the case.

    Edit: A tip to try is open the camera up and manually lock the focus on an image up close. After you have done that tap near the camera to see if it still makes this noise.

    You need to cool off before you go down there. They won't appreciate you acting all upset! And you won't be able to tell if you get a refurb or not.
