    This thread is from sprint community but those guys were being an assholes so i moved it to here. so here we go!

    My older phone is Sidekick 3, the vibrate on that thing is a monster. however the hero is so weak i could never feel anything not even if i place it on my skin of my leg. Vibrate is very important to me. I even wrapped my pant tight so it presses against my skin harder but nope! I'm seriously thinking about sending it back. :(

    were anyone able to feel their phone vibrate? if so what pattern and how do you wear it?

    do you use case or do you just put your phone in pocket as it is?

    mmmm i tried different ways.

    wearing case outside on the clip (works kinda ok but i don't like how case sticks out of my body.

    just putting phone naked like you did but nothing FELT NOTHING!

    either my nerve in my leg are weak or it was just so used to strong vibrator that it will not register weaker vibrates.

    IDK i will keep trying.

    i agree its pretty weak...i usually don't notice it right away and by the time i get it out and answer it i have a missed call

    kinda frustrating!

    yeah, i have until Nov 11th...probably returning the Hero and going for the Droid.

    i like the Sense UI but i think the slide out keyboard is a better option...and I would bet even the Droid will be able to run the Sense UI (I love open source)

    the only way i could feel it is to wear it very close and tight against my thight. know of any good way to wear it that way WHILE still easy to take phone out and put it back in?
