    I just got G1 phone and I think its awesome.

    The biggest weakness on this phone is vibration. Even I put G1 phone o my computer desk next to me. I cant feel a thing seriously but with my old Blackberry I can.

    I really need it badly since I am deaf.

    I found a funny app called Vibrator and vibration actually can last longer than the notification setup. I figure someone can help me setup fast and simple apps that allows us to tweak vibration to be stronger.

    I know Blackberry has range 1 to 10, let me decide what works best for me.

    How do I formally request Android Team or Google/TMO to look at it?

    Appreciated it.

    I can feel mine quite well ... possibly you have a lemon ... I would take it to a TMO center and compare it with a store unit ...

    I even lay mine on my bed and can still feel it vibrating ...

    i too am missing some power in the vibration. i had the kaiser before and it vibrated me in addition to itself.

    i guess that the g1 is meant to vibrate softly to save battery, due to its tiny size and capacity

    Download an application called "Missed calls" and I set my vibrate to go off for like 3 seconds. Pisses off a lot of people but I do eventually feel it :p

    Like what Justjimpc said you may want to take it and have tmo look at it seeing as how mine vibrates quite obnoxiously. Also in the market look for a app called SMS Popup, it allows you text messages to pop up like the Iphone but also you can set it to vibrate in bursts when you recieve a text, you can also adjust your led color to whatever you want. its pretty nice you have you phone vibrate 5 or 6 times when you get a text.
