    Hi this is my second iPad 2, my first one made a rattling noise when shaken a bit, the iPad was fine but I was concerned it would brake, I've just got this one and it's doing the same sound? Does anyone know what it is?

    I agree with this. Should not have any noise.

    No loose screws on my side either. You are going to have everyone shaking their iPads now. :)

    I think when you return this one, shake it before you leave the store. Not sure how many times Apple will return it.

    Why does one even shake their iPad? For games?

    If it's a 3G AT&T iPad and you don't yet have a SIM card installed, the empty SIM card tray rattles when you shake the iPad because it's loose in the slot; it's normally held firmly in place by the pressure of the SIM card on the electrical contacts in the SIM card holder but, without a SIM card, it's a little loose.
