    When I am on the phone my phone will vibrate the throughout the phone call, I have voicemails I have not checked but I don't see that being the reason. This happened out of random. Hummm........

    Maybe another incoming call?

    There is a setting, I believe, that makes your phone vibrate every 45 seconds while in a call. Go to Settings->Call settings and see if "Vibrate every 45 seconds" is checked.
  4. your gotta be more specific, is it vibrating constantly until the call is over, or does it vibrate every few seconds or minutes during the call? there is a difference.

    Mine has done the same since installing cm7. It constantly vibrates during calls and that setting is off. The person I talk to can also hear it

    Like shmackshmack said, is it continuous or intermittent?

    Without knowing that...
    Are you getting SMS/MMS or some other notification during the call? Sometimes those are set to vibrate.

    I have never had this issue on CM7. So there has to be a setting or app that is causing it. Does your phone vibrate like this when you are not receiving calls?

    it happens every few minutes. I have a different messager and phone app but I can't see where they're conflicting

    What apps? It could be something to do with that, you would be amazed at the issues I have seen from some of the 3rd party apps.

    Is it rooted or modded somehow? Any apps that were installed just before it started?
  11. the phrase the OP used, "it vibrates throughout the call" could either mean the vibrator motor is stuck totally on, or that it vibrates over and over again stopping at intervals until the call is over.

    knowing WHICH one it is would help is diagnosing. the way the OP worded it is vague at best.

    with mine it's over and over like I have an incoming call every 5-10 minutes. I'm using TouchPal Dialer and Handcent SMS.

    Does it happen when you don't use those apps? i.e. uninstall them to see if they are causing it.

    that's next, but I'd hate to lose my messages. I'm gonna see if there is a backup option
  15. I dont think you lose messages by uninstalling a 3rd party sms app...

    at least not with Go SMS, which is clearly the better between that and handcent.

    with GO SMS, if you delete the app, all the texts stay in the normal sms app, it also allows you to back them all up on the SD card to swap between phones or roms.

    I use the stock SMS/MMS. I have an app called SMS backup & restore that I use to save my messages. I do it this way because I had issues with MMS not working correctly on different 3rd party apps (GO SMS and Handcent). But you can try that app as well if you are afraid of losing your backups in switching from Handcent to stock SMS.

    I would also say that stating either of the 3rd party apps as better is a matter of preference, and is not necessarily "clearly" better for everyone and their usage. To each his/her own.

    I uninstalled both apps and my father was using the phone and said it was vibrating. I can't figure this out.

    And you tried this?

    Rooted with cm7 reloaded newest version, the gapps were done correct

    Have you tried reflashing? Then before any apps are installed (besides GAPPS) see if it still happens.

    I've done all and it still happens

    after some close observation, I think I've figured it out in my case at least . It's the sensor that determines how close your head or face is to the phone. When I pull the phone from my face and the screen comes back on, it vibrates. This doesn't happen with speaker phone. I just don't know if there is a cm7 bug or bad hardware. I don't believe it did this stock

    My phone only does this when I have the profile set to Home. If I set it to another profile, the phone does not vibrate like that during a call anymore.

    I was getting the same intermittant annoying vibrating during phone calls whilst using my rooted, CM7 android 2.3.6 phone. The profile was an issue. I reset the profiles, and selected default. All is ok now. Weird. thanks.
