    Hello,

    I just switched from my old iPhone to an HTC EVO a week ago. I'm a heavy user of Google apps, including Gmail of course.

    My question is regarding notification options. On my iPhone, I liked that I could set up mail to only vibrate with a new message. With Android, it looks like there's a default notification sound you can set up in the "Sound and Display" phone settings. And while in the Gmail app, you can get more granular, specifying a different ringtone if you like and add vibe. But there's no option to vibe only!

    Am I missing something? Maybe something for a future update?

    Thanks!
    James

    You need to turn on Notification, select the 'Silent' one as your ringtone and check the 'Vibrate' button.

    Yeah, I actually tried that first. When set to "Silent" ringtone with Vibe on (in Gmail settings), it doesn't make any sound or vibe at all. It shows up in the notification bar just fine though.

    I know vibe is working - haptic feedback works, and I get vibe when I get a call.

    Can anyone else confirm this behavior?

    Mine works as described. I have silent for the notification and vibrate on, and I get a vibrate, my LED flashes, and I get a notification in the status bar.

    Hmm...thanks for checking.
    I assume this happens the same way whether the phone is asleep or not?
