Thing is, an inability to tell when I am being called is kind of a dealbreaker on a PHONE. I'm still within my 30 day return period, I might upgrade to a Motorola Droid.
Anyone figured out a solution to the really weak vibrate on the Eris yet?
There is a program called "Smart Vibrator" that allows you to customize the vibration patter. I played with it a bit and it seems to work. I'm not saying it's going to solve the problem but it might help a bit. But yes, I agree - the vibrate is too weak so I never use it. I always have ring on now, or silence it in meetings. Not the end of the world, but not what I'm used to with my BBerries.
I grabbed this app and it definitely helps the issue. I can make the vibration happen in short or long instances, and set up patterns of multiple vibrations. I set mine to do a series of short and long vibrations that repeats 4 times when a text message comes in, and now I actually feel it.
Thanks for the tip!
