3. I absolutely HATE the vibrate function on phones. Disabling it was a simple matter on other phones, but no matter how I try, I can't get texts to stop prompting the phone to vibrate. Is there a master setting to completely disable vibrate across all programs and functions?
Thank you in advance,
P.S. My apologies if these questions are asked elsewhere, as I did my due dilligence in searching, but could not find.
1: No, using the phone while it is charging wont have any adverse effects on the battery. The only harmful thing that could happen would be overheating, but you would notice that well before the phone would get hot enough to do any damage.
2: Again, No. The phone has a special circuit that shuts off the charger automatically once it is fully charged, switching to what's known as a "trickle charge" which keeps the battery fully charged, but doesnt contuniously pump power into it.
3: I don't think there is a way to disable the vibration setting for all the apps in one spot. The best thing I can think of would be just to check each app that you have installed for a vibration mode in their settings.
